Dragan Tapshanov was born in 1988 in Skopje. He developed a passion for photography during his studies at the Faculty of Art and Design. He graduated from the same faculty becoming a professional graphic designer. He has visited over 60 countries and has lived in different places around the globe. It motivated him to become a photographer, to record various cultures and to tell unique stories using his camera. Tapshanov believes that by staying an amateur, one can take the maximum out of one’s creativity and ability to tell stories and unfreeze real moments and change the world through art. Photography is his one and only true love because it opened him the doors to the world and allowed his to record humanity.
