Boogie’s collection of street photography has fascinated critics from all over the world. Ah Wah Do Dem takes the viewer into the noisy and cryptic underbelly of Kingston, Jamaica. With one of the highest homicide rates in the world, the city is frequently deemed too dangerous to be seen by outsiders. Yet, the Belgradian photographer thrives in this environment and his photos show this by capturing never before seen insights into Jamaican society.

“Total immersion” – Wider.

One tension-filled image displays an armed soldier, a concrete barrier and two powerful messages sown into the street through graffiti: “VOTE” and “GOD BLESS SHEEP.” Andrew Sweigart from Street Hunters praises such images, writing that they “illustrate his commitment to capturing the Kingston he came to know as honestly as a photographer could. That strength felt through the photographs is very, very impressive.”

“His work is visceral and sharp. Raw human emotion.” – LitRiot

Boogie’s sixth monograph is his first shot in colour. “It would be really tragic for me to shoot Jamaica in black and white,” he told Vice, “it was the perfect place to explore a project in colour.” Yet Boogie shows no signs of being new to this style of photography as his vivid images masterfully capture the vibrant colours of Kingston.
