MARGINALIJE (Signed Copy)
9 x 7-7/8 in. (229 x 200 mm)
Signed in ink on title fly page. Photos by Stanko Abadžic. Introduction by Zdarvko Zima. Published 2009, MeanderMedia. Softbound book has 127 pages, approximately 100 black-and-white plates. ISBN No. 978-953-7355-50-0. To quote book reviewer Matt Damsker: "Abadžic is Croatia's photo poet, arguably sans peer. When he captures a series of dolls, mannequins and the like in Prague or Zagreb, or handprints on Parisian walls, he suggests a sense of play and abstract delight that can't easily be translated into words. The loneliness of empty tables and chairs in the lengthening evening light is mitigated by the sight of a frothy latte left behind, or by the curlicues of ironwork shadows falling all around. If anything, Abadžic's random sights and humorous still lifes (a carefully composed dinner plate, for example, elegantly outfitted with a seashell and dice, and placed on a cushion of rich fabric) are so luminously exposed, wringing every ounce of shadow-and-lightplay, that they infer color and texture beyond their austere black-and-white dominion. Original, complicated, and busily inhabiting the frame, Abadžic's photography never fails to breathe, inviting us into these mundane and nearly surreal spaces, implying that there is room for us--and for dogs, babies and art--in his brave new Europe."

Stanko Abadžic (Signed Copy)

Biographical and other information on the photographer. Essay by Natasa Segota Lah. As I said for the fly wrap of this book, "Stanko Abadžic's photographs remind me of a fusion of the street work of Henri Cartier-Bresson and the mystery of Andre Kertesz's early Hungarian images. Abadžic's images have that Eastern European sensibility that manages to imply that there is a sense of magic and awe in ordinary events, while at the same time capturing the instant in time that makes great photography so fascinating.
