Publisher's Description
Born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia, Boogie began photographing rebellion and unrest during the civil war that ravaged his country during the 1990s. Though he never planned to leave his homeland, a green card won in the national lottery brought him to the United States in 1998. Boogie settled in Brooklyn, where he resumed his photographic pursuit of those living on the fringe, outside the law, in the margins of society. Selected by Photo District News as Best Photography Book of 2006, his first book, It’s All Good (Miss Rosen Editions/powerHouse Books), documents the gangsters, crackheads, and junkies of New York City’s most notorious neighborhoods.

Whether on exhibit at Paris Photo or L’Eclaireur Tokyo, featured in Nike campaigns or Shellac catalogues, in prestigious magazines or cutting-edge websites, Boogie’s work continues to reach diverse audiences with his precise blend of incisive investigation and aggressive aestheticism. Digging beneath the surface of everyday life has become this self-taught photographer’s mission. Over the years he has amassed an archive no one, not even himself, has ever seen in full. Because he never prints contact sheets, every trip back to the negatives yields new and untold treasures. Boogie, his second monograph, is a limited edition of 500 signed and numbered slipcased books with a print. This collection of some of the photographer’s most personal images has been gathered during his travels through life with camera in hand.
