Vladimir Baclija was born in Subotica in 1948. His career as a professional photographer starts in 1970 in “Večernje novosti” where besides lifestyle photography, Vladimir specializes in ballet and fashion photography.
Together with a fashion designer Gradimir Buđevac, Vladimir founded “Moda” the first private fashion magazine in Yugoslavia. As an independent artist Vladimir was a long term associate of marketing studios “Borba” and “Delo” as well as marketing agencies: Spektra, New moment, Saatchi & Saatchi, Ideja Plus and others. He also worked as Art Director in Astro design. Vladimir cooperated with most renowned graphic designers: Nenad Čonkić, Slobodan Mašić, Dobrilo Nikolić, Bata Knežević, Dušan Aranđelović, Edvard Čehovin, Rajko Milović…
Vladimir was a photo reporter on wars in Beirut and Israel. He opened the author studio „Art Atelje Bačlija” in Vuk Karadžić foundation. Vladimir was awarded at the Golden Drum festival in Portorož in 1998. On the occasion of his big retrospective exhibition “Dadaizam” in the Museum of Applied Arts in Belgrade, Jelena Matić gave the following review on Bačlija in the “ReFoto” magazine:
„…Regardless whether the photos are taken in the exteriors at the city streets or in the studio with supporting props, Vladimir Bačlija’s photos have never been created on accident. The process of the creation has never begun or ended with a single switch of the camera. On the contrary, it seems that the author just like a film director, knows exactly what he wants and how to get it even before the process of the photo shooting…”
„During all the years Vladimir Bačlija has never stopped or looked back. With each new project and photography he finds brand new solutions that at one hand will accommodate the needs of a client or a magazine, while at the same time clearly point at the autonomy and not giving up on his inner creative perspective. This is exactly what made him one of the leading and always present authors in fashion and commercial photography.”
The exhibition “Golden Age” is made of original works of the author made during 70s
