Fucking New York
Fucking New York is the the critically acclaimed 256 page coffee table art book by Nikola Tamindzic:
As a tangerine donkey prances about the Oval Office, cities like New York desperately need defending. I’m talking New York values here. Sex, ambition, solidarity, beauty, cosmopolitanism, art, toughness bred from – and in defiance of – the meat grinder we call home. All those things worth fighting for.
You’d be wrong to see Fucking New York in the spirit of a Weimar portrait show. It’s a vision of utopia, in the city that loves itself best. It’s also a weapon. With humanity, eroticism, and savage vulnerability, Fucking New York says fuck you to the idiot fascism that threatens to storm the gates of our city.
Acclaimed New York portrait and fashion photographer Nikola Tamindzic established his reputation as Gawker's house photographer in 2004. Possessing an uncanny ability to disarm both subjects and viewers alike with his alluringly powerful portraits, he seeks to capture the beautiful contradictions of human experience.

There is something strangely familiar in a photograph by Nikola Tamindzic: it’s a self-reflective portrait of unapologetic vanity simultaneously affected by the pure, unadulterated humanity it also portrays. Looking closer, the work itself is a deliberate paradox – darkness and humor, desire and restraint – portraying of a world beyond our gaze that is recognizable, yet entirely dictated by its own rules and realities. The story doesn’t begin or end within the photograph, but seems to go on without you.
