The Beauty of Patterns


The latest addition to our Korcula photo gallery are two posters published by Croatia Tourist Board as part of their campaign based on the motto ‘The Mediterranean as it once was’.

Both posters explore the meditative aspects of pattern in architecture of Korcula Island.

The first poster shows urban pattern of Korcula Old Town’s medieval layout, shaped on basis of fishbone.

The second poster shows pattern of dry stone walls, built by local peasants, at Defora bays, on the south side of the island in vicinity of Zrnovo, .

Author of photographs is Damir Fabijanić, a freelance photographer, specializing in architecture and landscape photography.

Both posters were printed in dimensions 98×98 cm.
