71a is excited to host Lola Paprocka’s Book Launch and Exhibition: Blokovi – Novi Beograd, a photographic series exploring the New Belgrade apartment blocks and their residents.

The series was predominantly shot on medium format in August, 2015. Lola’s main source of inspiration comes from her interest in and admiration for 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 allows the interactions with strangers in everyday situations among Belgrade’s brutalist architecture to inform the overall narrative.

Thursday 19th May, 6 – 9pm
