Independent photo exhibition of 50 years exhibitions and education work with young photo amateurs

Organized by Photo Club Brodosplit, independent photo exhibition of Ante Bezić, leader of Photo Club Brodosplit for many years took place in city library ‘’ Marko Marulić ‘’ in period from 26th June till 19th July 2008.

First theme of Bezić photo is Split at day and especially at night. Even though the details of old town Split are recorded on thousand photos, the author accomplish one unique and at first sight every-day but also unusual experience of old and new town in light and in shadow with it's citizens in different activities. His calm and disciplined camera walks night and day through Split recording the arousal of life and silent dimensions of night life. Author seeks for harmonised shapes and ambient but he at the same time creates harmony on his photos, even if one missed it in the space.

Second theme is the Split Summer Festival, both drama and music. That summer night emancipation of spirit on many locations in Split is very good motive for the author, who operates with light and shadow and seeks for spiritual values in recorded motives.

On the live photos of groups and individuals he is one moment attracted by the rhythm of persons in dome space and other moment by the expression of person's face. He knew how to choose the short and most convenient moment with erases in flash and which contains the only essence of performing, performed act and characteristics of area.

Third theme, which is the most extensive one, is about work of piano player Ida Gamulin. Following her in her playing he succeeded to create visual reflection of her music interpretation, by giving the special attention one moment to her siluete, one moment to expression of her face, one moment to her hands.

Photos of Ante Bezić are rational and creative in their calmness and simplicity. It is one of many contributions to personal perception of Split, it's shapes and it's spirit.

In the year 1958 in the space of Brodosplit Mechanics first exhibition of workers photo amateurs was opened.

Until 1998 the Club operated in the Shipyard's House and at that time it was transferred to the Art Academy, what was also felt in our works and results.

On State competitions in the class of high schools we won first place five years in a row, we also received three State praises and award of town Split as Photo Club. Same awards also received long standing manager, Ante Bezić.

During last 50 years, Photo Club gave great impact on its surroundings and managed to perform great mission directed into youth and photography, following the development and needs of generations and technological achievements of photography.

The motives are spontaneous perpetuated moments of many happenings, which are offered in order to raise our senses and to remind us and inspire us to those secrets in us that we almost gave up by growing up: but is all around us and every moments is unique and unrepeatable. Our eternal need, regardless of everything, is the same for everyone: to keep and to share with others the joy of life. Those young authors witness with their works that they are fully aware of that.

Photo Club Brodosplit faced many problems which all amateurs of world have, but they didn't prevent the successful grow and development of the Club. Only one problem remained unsolved: the week has only seven days. Thanks to the quality work of young generations, their persistence that sometimes interferes with fanatic devotion and International awards, Photo Club gained many friends and many memberships.

One is specific and I give them my gratitude this way, Union of technical culture from Zagreb in which gallery Za-Te we exhibit for years, as well as Photo movie alliance from Zagreb with whom we have great cooperation. It is very important to mention that our first exhibition that was world-known "Vrijeme poslije oluje" headed in 1995 from this gallery into the world.

To all of those who participated in the preparations of all our exhibits, to many of our friends and firstly to young authors, I thank thee from the bottom of my hart.
