Branko Starcevic is a Belgrade-based portrait and advertising photographer. Though he often works in the field of commercial photography, he is best known for his recognizable and refined style in portrait photography. Regardless of the specific project requirements, he always strives to maximize the artistic effect by focusing on “internal dialogues” of his subjects. The effect is further enhanced by restrained chiaroscuro palette which accentuates the dramatic or static quality of characters and situations. Starcevic’s work is both contemporary and nostalgic – an example of well thought out documentarist approach bringing out the film patina of a bygone era.
