It's All Good

by Wendy Dembo in Culture on 26 October 2006

Boogie1

Boogie, a photographer born and raised in Serbia and now based in New York, has a love of chaos, violence and danger, which perhaps can be attributed to growing up in war-torn Yugoslavia. His first book, It’s All Good, is an ode to the gang members, prostitutes and junkies of notorious New York neighborhoods Bushwick, BedStuy and Queensbridge. His stark photos show junkies shooting up in their homes, kids playing in abandoned lots, and gang members with guns and dogs. An attempt to document his subjects with no judgment, Boogie says “the last thing I wanted to do was moralize—anyone could end up like that.” Judge for yourself by picking up It’s All Good from Amazon or seeing more images here.
