Photographer Stanko Abadzic presents his works in Photon Gallery in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from 29th of July till 26th of August. This is the first time Abadzic exhibits nudes, titled ‘The scent of women’, outside Croatia.

Stanko Abadžic was born in 1952 in Vukovar, Croatia. At the age of 15 he began to teach himself photography. After marrying, he worked as a reporter and photojournalist to support his family. When the Croatian War of Independence broke out in 1991, Abadžic left everything and fled with his family to Germany for what he hoped would be a brief stay. After four difficult years, during which he took few photographs, they were denied German citizenship and forced to leave. After moving to Prague, Abadžic experienced a rebirth and began exploring the city with a medium-format camera. At this point in 1995, he began to develop his visual eye in earnest.

Abadzic was able to return with his family to Croatia in 2002, settling in the capital of Zagreb. He continues to visit Prague to take photographs and also shoots on the Adriatic Sea. Abadžic has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik, Museum of Modern Art Rijeka, Mimara Museum in Zagreb, and various galleries in Japan, Argentina Prague, Berlin, and other Eastern European cities. He is represented in the United States by John Cleary (Houston, TX), Verve Gallery (Santa Fe, NM) and Contemporary Works (Pennsylvania).
