From Wikipedia
Predrag Pajdic (born 1965) is a London-based artist, art historian and curator. He is the founder and editor of the art photography blog “The Pandorian,” and his work has been shown internationally and at solo and group exhibitions worldwide. He also writes about and lectures on contemporary art, photography and fashion.

Early years

Pajdic was born to Serbian parents in Slavonski BrodSR CroatiaSFR Yugoslavia, as one of three children. As a child he was fascinated by his grandfather, a talented bagpipe,violin and cuckoo-clock maker and a father who ran a successful cast iron company. His creative curiosity began at an early age and encompassed a range of influences. As a child, he would imitate birds’ songs, collect feathers, mushrooms, flowers and talk to plants and animals.

Professional Life

After high school, he moved to London to study fashion design at Central St. Martins College of Art and Design, graduating in 1994. He also attended Courtauld Institute of Artwhere he earned a master’s degree in art history. Following graduation, he began experimenting with materials from tinsel to toilet paper for creations that appeared in video clips, on stages, in films and in New York’s Metropolitan Museum.

The Pandorian

As well as curating art publications, producing exhibitions and travelling, Pajdic oversees The Pandorian, which receives more than 1.5 million visitors a month. Portraits of people Pajdic meets and discovers in his travels are woven into blog‘s narrative. Pajdic has said he prefers to photograph people he meets rather than professional models because of the beauty he finds in every individual. For each subject, Pajdic selects a quote or a time in history to form the basis of the shoot’s art direction. The result is more like an online essay in photography form.
