Neapolis is a photographic book about a city that has never been seen, unexpected and unknown. “I always get lost because I don’t have a good sense of orientation. So I let myself go and start shooting. This is how my best photos come to life.” This was the approach of Boogie, a photographer born in Belgrade in 1969 and soon moved to New York, who reserved for his trip to Naples in the company of his camera.
Boogie is a photographer capable of capturing the hardest side of reality: from the suburbs of New York to the suburbs of Kingston. Boogie has always portrayed the criminal and violent face of the street, whose reasons lie among the folds of poverty and social distress.
His latest work, Neapolis, follows in the wake of his previous great successes: entering the beating heart of a dark reality and immortalizing world through his lens. Naples welcomed Boogie and that’s the result. In more than 80 black and white images and with the introduction of rapper Luchè.
