„At the birth of our planet, the most beautiful encounter between the land and the sea must have happened here.”
Imagine in this place a soldier, who came to serve his military service from some remote part of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy and who took a camera with him. We know names of only a few of them, such as Dr. Bela Mattyasovszky and Dr. Inja Pitarević, whose photographs from that time are today a valuable testimony of life in Boka and Montenegro. The authors of the exhibited photographs were masters of their craft. Unfortunately, their names are not known. Through their photographs, they expressed admiration for the epic nature of Boka and respect for the simplicity of rural life in its hinterland. In several photographs, the authors singled out a pure play of elements – light and shadow or rhythms and surfaces, known and seen on paintings from the beginning of the 20th century.
