A short presentation of some Vladimir Tatarević’s projects


The artist is inspired by Spartan warriors who, knowingly going to their deaths, the small and tragic and the opposing intimidation of Persian power, are a unique example of courage and madness. The author, with a modern approach, puts a powerful ancient fighter in the present day. Strong bodies in motion and convulsions remind us of what is primordial nature, the strength of the spirit and body of the male sex, perpetually provoked thirst for struggle, for power.

Photographs in addition to the bodily aspect carry the message that in any time, with any weapon, enemy, man will still fight the most important battle, battle within himself.

"Spartans" are the first part of Vladimir Tatarevic's photography cycle to which this author expresses the beauty of the human body and the strength of the spirit.

“Vestal Virgines”

Vladimir Tatarević in his photographs depicts the European women of the 21st century, a new sensuality, an energetic gesture, a suggestive gaze that radiates self-awareness of their own beauty as well as their physical and psychological superiority.

A more careful reading of these photographs requires, above all, deciphering and searching for the author's intentions, as well as the entire cultural context that remains in the background of the work. The attractiveness and virtual beauty of the female body in the tension of the movement, which is released by fairy draperies with a flash of light, tell us that these modern Amazons are freeing themselves from all previous prejudices about women...
