Born in England, I fell in love with Serbia at almost the instant I walked out into the warm, humid air, of a late summer evening in Belgrade. Since that day and through my photography, I have tried to give back some of the warmth and friendship that has been shown to me by literally everyone I’ve met. Raise a glass in Serbia and you will hear the word Ziveli echoed by all around you. It’s a word that comes from the verb ‘ziveti’ meaning to live, and it’s that celebration of life and living that I try to show.
