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 these - 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.
