Još od septembra 2011. godine Andy beleži život i dušu Beograda kroz niz fotografija objavljenih na njegovom blogu- belgradestreets.com. On voli da beleži mesta, ljude, trenutke i snimi uticaj određenog vremena ili emocija.
Njegov blog, belgradestreets.com, je mesto gde okuplja svoju doživotnu strast za fotografijom, pisanjem i komunikacijom.
Since September 2011, Andy Townend has been capturing the life and soul of Belgrade through a series of photographs posted to his blog, belgradestreets.com
Andy loves to capture places, people, moments and record the impact of a particular time or emotion.
His blog belgradestreets.com, is the place where he brings together his lifelong passion for photography, writing and communication. It’s attracted viewers from over 100 countries across the world and has a regular following of 1,200 readers.
Andy has been living and working here in Belgrade, as a Consultant, since February 2011 and, as he explores belgradestreets, he learned much about this amazing city, the people who live and work here, about himself, and about life.
When he set out on this journey Andy’s original goal was to capture belgradestreets with a series of weekly photographs, street by street.
Soon enough, belgradestreets took on a life of its own and his photographs and words became a journal, a place where he shares his thoughts and feelings as he explores our city, getting to know its people and what they mean to him.
belgradestreets hold the spirit of the city and its fascinating and diverse people.
A city not yet overrun by global culture and repetitive brands.
A city full of life, determination, memories and hope for the future.
belgradestreets, however rundown in places, overflow with life, colour, history and character.
Those who live and work on belgradestreets throw their arms open, with enthusiasm, welcoming visitors into their embrace.
Belgraders have seen hard times and yet in spite of this, possibly as a result of this, take life as it comes, devoting much of their time to their passion for life.
Belgrade is a city that has been through so much its people cannot remain reserved, living life behind closed doors, instead life spills onto the streets.
It has been said that Andy’s work on belgradestreets is held together by the same contradictory emotions that bind Belgrade, and its people, together as a city, that there is a deep melancholy to some of his images but even at their most intense they evoke the humour and light of this great city.
Through his blog belgradestreets.com and book Andy is sharing his passion for this great city and its people through his heart, his soul…through his eye.
A selection of his photographs have recently been published in a book “belgradestreets” which is now available in bookstores throughout Belgrade and online from Amazon.
