« Captured as spaces in their essential form — presenting only the necessary — the locations photographed by Ljubodrag Andric are devoid of their intrinsic monumentality; the objective of this approach is to neutralize their narratives, both contextual and historic. 

These large-scale photographs are characterized by the absence of human figure and by a formal structure that, despite the attention to realistic detail, is rooted in the various forms of geometric abstraction. One of the most characteristic features of Andric’s works is the tactile quality that brings frescos to mind, a choice that stems from the fact that Andric has never lost sight of the Italian pictorial tradition. »

— The Language of Light. Ljubodrag Andric by Demetrio Paparoni, Skira 2016

Ljubodrag Andric’s large-scale photographs are characterized by the absence of human figure and by a formal structure that, despite the attention to realistic details and space, is rooted in the various forms of geometric abstraction. One of the most characteristic features of Andric’s works is the tactile quality that brings frescos to mind.

With its selection of Andric’s works accompanied by texts by Demetrio Paparoni, Barry Schwabsky, Aldo Nove, Philip Tinari and with an interview by William A. Ewing, this monograph offers a comprehensive review of the work of one of the most interesting contemporary photographers, known for his capacity to transmit to a photograhic image the optical qualities typical of painting.
