Postcards from Paradise book is a result of a long-term photography project that has followed Duška’s life in Malta since her first arrival back in the 90’s. It portrays and documents some of the last remnants of authentic Malta and captures the quiet time capsule and a way of life seemingly untouched by IKEA.
Shot over 10 years, this body of work was first launched at the Malta Design Week in 2014. Since then it appeared in many group and solo exhibitions in Malta and abroad and finally in 2016 in a book that received an Honourable Mention in the Self-Published/Documentary category of the International Photography Awards. - Lavinia Collodel, Art Historian, Rome
