ROBERT GOJEVIĆ

biography

Robert Gojevic (born 1968) is a Croatian photographer with a strong background in commercial design and experience in advertising and social media. He is an illustrator, painter, graphic designer, and collector of nineteen-century photographs. Born and based in Zagreb, he works as a freelance photographer in his suburb studio with Darkroom and nineteen-century large-format camera. He uses a variety of photographic techniques; pinhole, film, instant and digital photography. His photographs are the results of his attempt to understand and explore the oldest stage of the photographic medium, historical processes, and technologies in visual conversation with old masters of nineteen-century photographic studios in Zagreb.

As a photographer whose work is rooted in the earliest tradition of the medium, he is passionate about historical photographic processes of Wet-Plate Collodion, Ambrotype, and Ferrotype. In the printing process, he works with salt print positives, albumen print, cyanotype, and Van Dyke. On studio portraits as a subject of anachronism, he is exploring activism and the spirit of the twenty-first century visual communications. His work has been recognized on social media and magazines because of his attitude and strong point of view. As a founder, editor-in-chief, art director, and designer of worldwide known international on-line photography magazines Bulb, 2007 – 2009, and Blur, 2009 – 2018, he has international experience in selecting various international photographic competitions.

Robert’s work has been awarded and exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across Croatia and has been published nationally and internationally, both printed and online publications. He became multiple-awarded after his first national recognition and success with the Wet Plate portraits of public figures and people from media, music, theatre, film, and television, arts, and culture. His images of artists, writers, and authors have been publishing as official public portraits in books, publications, magazines, and media. He is an active member of the Section for fine art photography in ULUPUH, Croatian Association of Artists of Applied Arts and HZSU, Croatian Freelance Artist Association
