CROATIAN MISCELLANY is an ongoing and deeply personal portrait of this southeast European country – its people, traditions, festivals and cultural heritage – by UK-based photographer Rudolf Abraham. It is not intended to be a collection of well-known sights and beautiful views – not that Croatia has any shortage of those – but rather a more intimate glimpse of places both on and off the beaten track, and into the daily life of a country that has fascinated this particular photographer for the best part of the last 15 years. The hope is that the images from this project will, on its completion (if, that is, such photographic documents can ever be called ‘complete’), form the basis for a large-format photo book.
Rudolf Abraham is an award-winning photographer and travel writer specializing in Croatia and Eastern Europe. He is the author of Walking in Croatia, The Mountains of Montenegro, National Geographic Traveller Croatia, Croatia – Island Walks and The Bradt guide to Istria, as well as books on Torres del Paine national park and Northumberland, and his work is published widely in magazines and online including BBC News, CNN Traveller, Discover Britain, France, Hidden Europe, Meridiani, National Geographic Traveller, OE, Wanderlust, Vanity Fair etc. Rudolf first visited Croatia in 1998, lived in Zagreb for two years, and continues to spend several weeks of each year in this, his favourite country in Europe. www.rudolfabraham.co.uk
