We are pleased to share this academic journal written by Maxine Watts: ‘Even in destruction and ruin: the brief yet significant achievements of an unknown photographer.’

This academic journal is taken from: Power & the glory: pedagogy, identity & expertise within an FE context, Watts, M. 2015. BA Honours in Post Compulsory Education, First Class.  Abridged version:
Goran Popović (Coga): photographer (1964-2012).

The text hopes to offer a respectful insight into the influences, personal philosophies and reflections that shaped his distinctive style of photography.

Taken from our private discussions about his life and work, this journal hopes to keep his memory alive and to allow a wider audience to appreciate his unique talent. I would like to thank Professor Peter Bennett for his generosity and patience with which he gave his time and assistance in preparation for this academic journal*. Also, I am hugely indebted to my colleagues for their compassion, professionalism and vision for the subsequent book for Miloš**. For their support, I would specifically like to thank Hiro Watanabe, Pam & Paul Biddle, and Shaun Pettigrew.

‘Even in destruction and ruin’, the brief yet significant achievements of an unknown photographer.
