I’m currently finishing up a project with photographer Blerim Racaj that involved photographing a sports building. This is the same exact building in all seven cities of Kosovo. A couple of months ago, we traveled to each city and photographed the building. What started as a postcard project, is now turning into a newspaperish format. The concept for this building was very nice – it would serve as a center for sports, but also function as a place for cultural activities. Its structure is made of very strong and thick concrete, a sort of brutalist approach, similar to some other buildings around Kosovo built in the 70s and 80s. Throughout the years, these buildings were very untaken care of, which resulted in each building developing their own identity. For example, when the interior of the building in Prishtina was burned, they ended up replacing its roof, so now it has a completely different roof compared to the rest of them in other cities. Although due to the changes that were made in them and the location they were built in makes them look slightly different from each other, when looking at them as a series, you can still tell they are the same structure. Pictured above, the building in Ferizaj and Gjakova.

Surfing the Black

Here’s a poster I did earlier this year for the Surfing the Black project taking place at the Jan van Eyeck Academie. The poster is for the film Tri by Aleksandar Petrovic. Here is a picture at the exhibition in Blegrade.
