The photographs of young Belgraders during the 1960s and 1970s is the last part of my promised Time Travel Trilogy. Two years ago, I started with the Brutalist architecutre, followed by Tito’s birthday and Youth Day. So, the last Time Travel post, my personal favourite, is about Bane Đorđević’s street photography. Bane was a piano professor and member of photo club Belgrade. He used the Czech Flexaret camera, which didn’t have a zoom lens. Therefore, he had to come really close when taking pictures. But this was never a problem because people knew him and Momo Kapor, a famous novelist and painter, once wrote that Bane stands everyday on the corner of the Knez Mihailova Street and waits for glamorous people to show up. The serial is called passersby and will make you wanna travel back in time.
