Nikola Vucemilovic

UNTITLED (Yugoslavia, 1955-1965)

After achieving fame as a partisan and war photographer during the Second World War, in 1947 Nikola Vuãemiloviç began to photograph for the Yugoslav navy. In the years that followed he recorded Yugoslav sea life on the Mediterranean Sea, in the Far East and Africa, and other places. In addition to his official activities, Vuãemiloviç worked autonomously. Nor did he have any problem showing his own work. That can be attributed not only to his position as a navy photographer, but also to the status of photography in Yugoslavia. As an 'applied art' the medium was not of interest to the censors, as opposed to art forms such as film, theatre and literature, which were regarded as creative arts.
