On our way home from France, Louise met Richard and me at Luton airport so we could catch a plane to Serbia together to visit photography collective Belgrade Raw. During the week we were in their city (20th-27th October), we met with Darko, Andrej and Nemanja several times for drinks, dinner, a walk around Belgrade, and in-depth conversations about the work both groups would like to do together. The whole thing was productive, instructive and fun, so we came away really energised by the exchange.
We’ll try to add more later when we’ve all got our films back from the lab and our thoughts together… Meanwhile, some digipix © Louise Taylor.
This boat was our ‘taxi’ from our fantastic floating hostel, ArkaBarka, to Brodić, a riverside restaurant where we ate great Serbian pizza.
In one part of Belgrade they have real zebra crossings.

We were also introduced to young filmmaker Nikola Zecevic, who’s currently producing an interesting documentary about the creative scene in Belgrade, and is part of Spotlight on Serbia.

Wideyed’s trip to meet Belgrade Raw was funded with a NAN ‘Go and See’ Bursary 2010.
