(E) AWARD WINNING PHOTOGRAPHER IVAN PARIC

 

ABSOLUT ATRACTION

The international photo magazine PDN (Photo District News) awarded IVAN
PARIC the winning entry in 2002 Photo Annual. On May 22nd, Paric was honored
at the gala celebration in Manhattan at the exclusive Sky Club on top of Met
Life building.

Next year, Paric will graduate from the prestigious Brooks Institute of Photography located in Santa Barbara, California.

Born in Zagreb, Croatia in 1980, Ivan is the eldest child of Danica and Ljubo
Paric. When he was ten, his parents gave him a small, Kodak point-and-shoot
camera using 110-size cassettes. Thrilled with his toy, Ivan brought the
camera to school to photograph classmates, until his teacher confiscated the
camera as a punishment for disrupting the class. "I still remember that day
as my earliest photo session. I had to return to school with one of my
parents to get the film and camera back."

At age of 13 he became an active member of the Photo Club Zagreb. Pretty
soon, photography was all he wanted to do in life. In 1996, Paric met third
generation Croatian American photographer Don Wolf, who was visiting Zagreb
at that time. Wolf, who changed his name from Vuk, went out of his way to
mentor Paric.

In 1998, Paric received the People's Choice award from University of
California Santa Barbara Extension, International Programs. Than in 2000, Paric excel at the Brooks Institute of Photography by receiving an award from Faculty-Staff.

Ivan focuses on fashion, portrait and product photography. He is currently defining his own style by experimenting with light and smoke in his latest series 
"American Spirit".
