Neven Grujić was born in Serbia in 1967. Inspired by the thought that people who don’t travel end up thinking only about the values of their own society and culture and therefore they are deprived of new learnings and experiences, he went on his first big journey in 1996. He visited most of the south-east Asia then. Travelling has very quietly become his way of living, a certain tool in search for the meaning of life, mixed with honest communication an photographing people he met on the journeys. When he visited India in 2003., he fell in love with this country of great contrasts forever. It has been and still is his biggest challenge, the wonder he keeps coming back to and discovering in a new different way, every time. Common people and reality of every day life are endless subjects of Neven’s photography. Very often, it represents a two way process. Through the lens he observes, absorbs and tries to show, but he also learns about other people, as much as he does about himself.
Neven is contributing photographer for the Serbian editions of National Geographic Magazine. He lives and work between Serbia, Spain and India.
