The project resulted in about two hundred first-rate and never before seen photographs, most of which reveal a completely different view of well-known cultural and natural heritage in Croatia, and some unveil completely new valuable sites and attractions. All of the photographs have been included in the remarkable photo monograph “National Geographic – Croatia from Above”.
The fact that the photographs have been published in no less than six stories in the prestigious National Geographic magazine is the best proof of their quality. My approach has earned me the prestigious American National Geographic editor’s award. The project has been supported by Croatian president Ivo Josipović, the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Culture, UNESCO, Croatian National Tourist Board, and more than a hundred different institutions.
In order to present the project results in the best possible way, the KEK team, together with external collaborators, designed a solar-powered traveling exhibition. From 2014 to 2016, the exhibition was hosted 25 times all over Croatia, and it represented Croatia at the greatest world exposition, EXPO in Milan. Thanks to the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and the Croatia House Foundation, we have made a smaller gallery exhibition, which travels all around the world and promotes our beautiful country.
From 2015 until today, we have shown Croatia from Above, our educational exhibition of posters, in 260 high schools across 20 Croatian counties. In 110 schools, I opened the exhibition with an educational lecture. The project received a recommendation by the Education and Teacher Training Agency, as well as funding by the Ministry of Science and Education and the Ministry of Culture (UNESCO).
