Beograd Concrete

“Beograd Concrete” by Inês d’Orey results from an artistic residency in Belgrade, Serbia, in 2021, in as part of Belgrade Photo Month 2021. Inês d’Orey created a photographic series that involves the modernist and brutalist architecture present in this region of the world. The concept of identity that architecture imprints in a given territory is a constant in her work, having already explored other cities such as Lisboa, Porto, Arhus, Copenhagen, and Tokyo. In the case of Belgrade, Inês d’Orey was especially interested in the mix of architectural styles and references she found in the city, where public buildings, built between 1946 and 1980, intersect with other buildings dating from the First World War when Yugoslavia was formed.
