Supplemental information

Stanko Abadžic (1952-) is a photojournalist who shows a wide range of genre and themes within his work. Undoubtedly, this is because after his amateur beginnings, he achieved professional maturity working with the press. His professional photography was not just what the authorities liked, but was serious, purposeful and, at the end of the day, dependable work. A photojournalist working for the press usually does not have much extra time on his hands.
His black and white photography is instantly recognizable. It has an essential spark of purity, as well as technical precision, visual refinement, and interesting content. However, these qualities are not of lesser importance than what can be distinguished as the author’s unique signature: a distinctive vision and sense of skilled craftsmanship. His are works that directly address the viewer.
A native of Vukovar, Croatia, Abadžic had dedicated himself to photography by the age of fifteen. His early efforts were connected with the Borovo photography club, taking part in members’ exhibitions. The club also arranged his first solo exhibitions. He completed his studies in German, and worked as a correspondent for the Croatian newspaper Vjesnik.
Since 1995 he has been living and working as a photographer in Prague, which has remained his second love. He dedicates himself to his new home as well as to the Adriatic coast which he continues to visit. An exhibition in 2000 in the former home of photographer Josef Sudek demosntrated this. However, this was not the first time Abadžic had exhibited in Prague as he had already participated in the group exhibition Art Against Racism (1998), arranged by the Humanist movement in the Mánes exhibition hall. About one year later he took part in a similar exhibit in the gallery in the Rock Cafe club.
He has put on smaller exhibitions at the Jazz Club Železná and a solo exhibition in the Literary Cafe on Týnská street. With his exhibition in the home of photographer Josef Sudek, supported by the Republic of Croatia’s embassy in Prague, he introduced his most complex work yet. In 1999 Stanko Abadžic participated in the 1st Photographic Biennial on the island of Krk in Croatia. At the beginning of 2001, he received a prize at the well-attended annual Prague photographic exhibit and competition where he also displayed works from his Prague series.
