Branimir Ružić joined Gallery 44 in 2010. Through photography, Ružić pursues his visions, interests and passions while observing the world around him. He offers insight into themes that interest him and renders emotions through images that he captures and creates. For Contact 2019, Ružić will exhibit photographs from the one-of-a-kind trumpet festival held in Guča (pronounced Gucha), Serbia in August 2018. Ružić photographed people who gathered from all over the world, documenting the diversity of cultures and generations through the faces, instruments and outfits of musicians and guests. His aim was to visualize the swinging atmosphere of people who found themselves at liberty to be unconstrained, and to capture joy and enthusiasm in his portraits. Focusing on spontaneous moments, Ružić’s photographs offer insight into the synergy between traditional Serbian folklore and cultures of the world.
