Curated by David Pujadó

For the past year I’ve been following the extraordinary story of Nikola Stevanović, a 15-year old boy who is convinced he will be the first Olympic ski jumper from Serbia. He and his dedicated father have sacrificed everything to fulfil this dream.
Building handmade tracks, training on makeshift slopes with no gove-rnment support, the two are pursuing the Olympic dream despite the enormous sacrifices.
The father and son have let me into their lives and allowed me to see not just their unique training, but their personal lives in Serbia and now in Slovenia also, where Nikola is enrolled in school and is now training on the mountains.
I intend to follow them in preparation for the 2022 Olympics and present this early work for your consideration.

Please note that due to the Covid-19 situation nobody can enter the Gallery without wearing a mask as required by the Rep of Serbia regulations.
