Rostfrei Publishing started as an idea of creating a platform for bringing to light visual content we find inspiring, critical and inventive. That is what we did for many years with a trans-Balkan street magazine called Kontejner
and now we feel that it is time to take it to another level.
Belgrade Raw book with photographs by Andrej Filev, Darko Stanimirović,
Luka Knežević-Strika, Milovan Milenković and Nemanja Knežević is available in our store.
Photo editing was done by Donald Weber.
Belgade Raw book is finally going in-to printing.
Today we OK'd the proof prints and on Monday we take it to the printing machine.
Two minutes look inside the book on Vimeo.
Also a few words about the background of essay.
"Between October of 2007 and March of 2008 I was able to
spend 3 days with a group of people involved in dog fights.
In those 3 visits I saw small puppies being encouraged to be more and more
violent in their playing, puppies that had their ears cut, to remove a potential
place where in a fight they cut get bitten, a female, that was getting ready for
a fight, but died from a heart attack while training. Probably because of steroids,
extensive training and pour nutrition. I saw backyard sparing matches and
a match with 10.000 EUR on the line. But I also saw eyes. Eyes that told me
things my photographs could never tell."
