These days when  Dubrovnik is celebrity town of our country and a top destination for those with some
extra money in their pockets it is sad to look at these beautiful photos of Dubrovnik from around 1950./60.
All that innocence and beauty of simplicity now is replaced with mass tourism monster. Of course it is still
a beautiful town but what I really wish and hope is that it will keep it's soul alive along the way.

*  Tošo Dabac is the author of these beautiful photos.
His photographs were published in domestic and international encyclopedic issues. He was also the author
or a co-author of a large number of art, city, and regional monographs dedicated to different parts of Croatia
and Yugoslavia. Tošo Dabac was a member of several domestic and international professional associations:
since 1953 he has been a member of the Photographic Society of America, honorary member of the Belgian
Royal Photographic Society (CREPSA), and Dutch FOKUS Salon. He was a bearer of the title Hon. exc.
FIAP (International Organisation of Art Photographers).
