An old friend came through town last week to perform a concert of spiritual music. I first met Tajci way back in 1987, in a tourist resort on the coast of Croatia. She was the new kid (16 years old) singing in her father’s band. I had met her father, Stanko, the previous year while he was touring with his band through Canada and the US.
Many people were saddened when Stanko passed away a few years ago. He truly was one of a kind. I spent a lot of time hanging out with him and a many of his other friends (From 1987 through 1993 I spent about 14 months in Croatia). A lot of good times indeed.
After that summer of 1987, Tajci went on to some amazing success in the country’s music industry, and at the height of that success, left Croatia and moved to the US. I won’t try to tell her story here… but if you would like to read up a little… Tajci’s Story.
Back to the pictures! Here are several of the photos I took last week during her concert, followed but a few Black and White images that I took at one of her concerts way back in 1990. I love shooting in this type of concert setting – about as much as I love being a wedding photographer!
