|PORTFOLIO - YUGOSLAVIA
|Thankyou for viewing my portfolio. These pages are currently under
Please note: I normally take slides as these are required for reproduction by magazines and advertising agencies. Most of the following selection have been reproduced from printed copies taken from magazines, (I do not usually use print film), hence the quality of reproduction is not the best. If I have scanned off a photographic print, it probably came from a slide and once again a certain amount of quality degradation is to be expected.
In 1990 I trvelled to Yugoslavia as a photo/journalist and subsequently wrote several articles on the country, mainly from the yachting charter and travel side. Although we certainly recognised some of the problems that the people were experiencing in this once communist country, especially the massive inflation, we could not have foreseen the tragic problems that were to erupt. Discussions with local people soon gave the impression that they were cautious, and any comment that appeared to be of a political nature was always guarded, a caution due no doubt to the communist days. I would suggest that I, together with a Melbourne charter yacht agent kerry Dickenson, and an delaide based journalist. were no doubt some of the last of the peaceful travellers to Belgrade. We commenced our yaching voyage from Dubrovnik, a most fascinating historic town with its walled old-city, and travelled to the islands of the Adriatic Sea. I wept unashamedly when I saw the bombing of Dubrovnik on television. My travels gave me the oppportunity of visiting a number of coastal towns and villages, all offering an excellent opportunity for photography. At the time I was writing constantly for Club Marine magazine, whose editor (at the time) Andrew Woodley appreciated a good photograph and was prepared to publish more than the general postcard scene. The following is a small collection of my work, chosen on the basis of what has been published (and therefore in print form), and what I particularly enjoy.
To the many people that we met on our travels, I can only wish them peace, that they may enjoy their wonderful country and one day reach prosperity.
(I shall include here, later, a copy of my feature article published in Club Marine.)
