Tadej Vaukman is an independent artist, photographer, and publisher. In his predominantly photographic-based artistic practice, he often follows the principles of rough documentary and street photography through which he documents and comments on topical phenomena from the margins of society and shows unembellished images of the world, here and now. In 2015, he released his debut photo book entitled Dick Skinners, followed by his second book Grandheroes in 2018. In 2014 he founded 585 ZINES, a publishing project, which is exploring the medium of a photocopied fanzine. He attended several art book fairs, including I Never Read in Basel, Switzerland and Miss Read in Berlin, Germany. Since 2011 he regularly exhibits in Slovenia and abroad.
