BG BOOM Dusan Reljin — Fashion photographer Dusan Reljin fuses past and present in his latest project, BG BOOM-Dusan Reljin, on display at Milk Gallery. The exhibit harmonizes two sides of Reljin’s life, that of a New York fashion photographer and his upbringing in Serbia, melding them equally into a series of provocative photographs. Each photograph functioning as a collage of its own, the numbered series layers neon images of the wreckage from the 1999 NATO bombing’s in Belgrade with sensual images of some of today’s top models, including Jessica Stam, Daria Werbowy, and Eva Herzigova. The series altogether expresses the dark contrast of Reljin’s life, albeit in a manner that hides the horror of the bombings and screams fashion editorial shoot.
