Boogie Book and Art Shows!

January 3, 2008 by garry

Born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia, photographer and distant future Altamont contributor 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 he 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, documents the gangsters, crackheads and junkies of New York City's most notorious neighborhoods.

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. To celebrate the release of Boogie, a limited-edition of 500, Colette and Galerie Olivier Robert present two distinct exhibitions featuring some of the photographer's most personal images that have been gathered during his travels through life with camera in hand.
