Dragan Saric is a sociologist-turned-photographer born in Yugoslavia. Identifying with a country that no longer exists in reality, Dragan is interested in the space that lies in between the fall of one country, and the formation of another – a state of social liminality. Dragan uses photography as a medium to express the structures and symptoms that house such liminality, temporarily immersing the viewer in a world that is somewhat sentimental, lonely, and estranged. Therefore, rather than strictly documenting reality, Dragan’s viewpoint takes a more poetic approach. Through his work, he questions what leaving behind and forming an identity means in a more and more globally connected society, contemplating themes such as nationalism, migration, and (be)longing. Dragan has lived and worked in Utrecht and Taipei and is currently based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
