About ‘Blokovi’:

Blokovi is a photographic series exploring the New Belgrade apartment blocks and their residents, predominantly shot on medium-format in August, 2015. Lola’s main source of inspiration comes from her interest and admiration of architecture and portraiture. These two themes frequently present themselves throughout the project. She intends not to focus on any particular group of people or subjects but has allowed the interactions with strangers in everyday situations within the Belgrade’s brutalist architecture to inform the overall narrative.
