Serbia – Beautiful and Blind is a visual diary without beginning or end, about a piece of land in the Balkans and the people who live there. This documentary project explores everyday life, privileges and consequences of living in an undefined system of values. It talks about a country in transition, stuck between a turbulent past and an uncertain future, unable to distinguish between a dream and reality. In the end, this is a story about society and an individual, and their struggle to survive on the surface of a restless ocean.
Aleksandar Slavković is a 27 year old photojournalist and documentary photographer based in Serbia.
After graduation from the College of Hotel Management and a few hospitality jobs, he started to gain interest in documentary photography and visual storytelling as the best way to explore the world.
After three years as a freelance photographer, he started working for the media company Ringier Axel Springer.
In 2019 he received a scholarship from VII Academy in Sarajevo to attend the 9 months-long interdisciplinary Seminar for Narrative and Documentary Practice, together with 14 photographers from the wider Balkans region.
His work has been published in several Serbian magazines, such as NIN and Vreme and a selection of online publications.
