Russia: Photographer slams Sun article portraying ‘Moscow’s gritty underworld’

SOT, Vladimir Milivojevich, Serbian photographer (English): “Look, I trusted them. They said it would be, the article would be around my photos. I never assume it would be anything like this. I thought it would be about my photography, for God’s sake.” SOT, Vladimir Milivojevich, Serbian photographer (English): “Oh, man, come on, it has nothing to do with the real situation. It is going to be... Еще perfectly safe. The World Cup, I mean, of course. I feel safe in Moscow, come on, of course.” Belgrade-born Vladimir Milivojevich, also known as Boogie, has spoken out about an article in the British red top newspaper The Sun that used his photos supposedly depicting “Moscow’s gritty underworld.” He was speaking via Skype from Moscow on Monday. Milivojevich said that the article in the newspaper “has nothing to do with the real situation” and that his photos were “clearly taken out of context.” The article links the photographer’s work to Russian ultra-nationalists, alcoholism and football hooliganism. “Look, I trusted them. They said it would be, the article would be around my photos. I never assume it would be anything like this. I thought it would be about my photography, for God’s sake,” he said. “The way I shoot, the way I see things, usually captures some dark. I think, even if I shoot flowers and puppies, it’s going to look dark,” he said. “It is going to be perfectly safe. The World Cup, I mean, of course. I feel safe in Moscow, come on, of course,” he said. On May 11, the tabloid paper published an article titled “Incredible images reveal life inside Moscow’s gritty underworld where hardcore football fans and bare knuckle boxers rule the streets.”
