27 Captivating Black-and-White Photographs That Show Yugoslavia’s Punk Rock Scene in the Early 1980s

Punk in Yugoslavia was the punk subculture of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The most developed punk scenes across the federation existed in Slovenia, the Croatian coastal towns, Vojvodina, and Belgrade. According to Dangerous Minds, photographer Jože Suhadolnik started taking pictures of bands and fans at the tender age of 15 (his first show was a 1981 Siouxsie and the Banshees concert), and he's recently compiled his photos into a book, Balkan Pank.
“You could be arrested and beaten hard by police because you sprayed graffiti or were wearing a badge with a ‘Nazi Punks Fuck off’ sign just because ‘Nazi’ is on it,” Suhadolnik told Dazed. “Few people were jailed and later secretly followed by the police.”
