Tadej Vaukman was born in 1984. He grew up in Dravograd and is now based in Ljubljana, Slovenia. A freelance artist, photographer and publisher. In his prevalently photographic practice he often uses an explicit approach: his images document current phenomena on the social margins and portray a gritty world of the present. The protagonists of this world are rebels who voluntarily reject seeming advantages, unconditionally and uncritically followed by the masses. The author of two monographs (Dick Skinners, Grandheroes). In addition to Slovenia, he exhibited in Switzerland and Germany.
