Nenad Saljic photography: A Church Inside a Church #1, Drvenik Veliki, Coroatia, 2010

I first came across Nenad Saljic’s work when he won the Gold Award in B&W’s 2011 Singe Image Contest. His image ‘A Church Inside a Church #1, Drvenik Veliki, Coroatia, 2010’ (above) is a stunning image full of symbolism: a prominent silhouetted cross, the overhead sweeping heavens and a slightly elevated composition that suggests we have ascended ‘above’.

The starburst sets a mystical, evangelical overtone; the open gate invites us to pass through (over?) and enter this centred, meditative space. It’s universal, it’s bigger than us. And perhaps better.

Nenad Saljic produces images that seem concerned with overt spiritual messages and inspirations; his recent 2011 work such as ‘Walk the Line’ also connotes mysticism. There’s a force of nature captured so strongly its significance is reflected in its overt presence. Big fat thumbs up.
