Exhibition “Odiseja Brač @ Infozona:

The author exemplifies the unique motifs of the island of Brač under the starry sky uniquely, using long panorama exposures and collating exposures. The photography cycle is the result of the adventurous spirit of the author and his love of the island, which is why he spent many nights at various locations on the island of Brač. His shots were preceded by long-term planning and observation of the galaxy and moon movements, light pollution and weather conditions.

Božan Štambuk was born in 1990 in Supetar on the island of Brač. He met photography in 2010 when he successfully completed the school of general and special photography under the leadership of Dr. Darko Alfirević and in the same year participated in the collective exhibition at the Split Photoklub. After a long break with photography, Štambuk has been intensively engaged again since 2016 when he began to volunteer at InfoZona. He graduated from the Faculty of Economics in Split and is involved in photography with music, graphic design and web design.
