Full Description

“There’s passion in Boogie’s work” – Street Hunters “His work is visceral and sharp. Raw human emotion.” – LitRiot Boogie’s collection of street photography has fascinated critics from all over the world. A Wah Do Dem takes the viewer into the noisy and cryptic underbelly of Kingston, Jamaica. With one of the highest homicide rates in the world, the city is frequently deemed too dangerous to be seen by outsiders. Yet, the Belgradian photographer thrives in this environment and his photos show this by capturing never-before-seen insights into Jamaican society. Boogie’s sixth monograph is his first shot in colour. “It would be really tragic for me to shoot Jamaica in black and white,” he told Vice, “it was the perfect place to explore a project in colour.” Yet Boogie shows no signs of being new to this style of photography, as his vivid images masterfully capture the vibrant colours of Kingston.

He has published six monographs, IT'S ALL GOOD (powerHouse Books, 2006), BOOGIE (powerHouse Books, 2007), SAO PAULO (Upper Playground, 2008), ISTANBUL (Upper Playground, 2008), BELGRADE BELONGS TO ME (powerHouse Books, 2009) and A WAH DO DEM (DRAGO, 2016).
