Photography exploring the utopian concrete architecure and anti-fascist WWII monuments (Spomeniks) in the Balkans from the era of Tito's Yugoslavia.
Steve Cvar spent the entire year of 2019 traveling and hunting down concrete architecture in several cities formerly part of Yugoslavia:
Skopje and Krushevo, North Macedonia
The unique historic concrete architecture from Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union is quickly dissapearing and requires help from the community to be preserved.
The creative architectural themes seen in Tito's post WWII Yugoslavia reflect the distancing from the USSR along with their more cookie-cutter social realism themes common at the time.
