Kopljar made photographic portraits of his artist colleagues who never consented to becoming part of the mainstream. They were forever true to themselves and remained in the margin, neglected and forgotten. Here, their fellow artist has depicted them as human refuse, as people who are unwanted, whereby he casts them as nominal examples of the Western cultural tendency to create circumstances whereby certain people are banished to the margins, or even wholly excluded.
