Branimir Karanović (1950), emeritus Professor of the University of Arts from 2016, graduated from the Faculty of Applied Arts, and then received his master’s degree from the graphic department of the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade. As a professor of photography, he teaches at the Faculty of Applied Arts in Belgrade. The author’s exploration of photographic and graphic work, that started in the early 1970s, is based on the consistent examination and interpretation of current, and often marginalised, phenomena of modernity through the comparative exploitation of documentary photography and experiments in the field of graphic disciplines. The latest series of works, Recycling Two Squares, consists of digital graphics thematically related to images of urban life in which he explores the possibilities of combining and interpreting photography intended for printing with collage and three-dimensional applications.
