RIP Zoran Vidinic 1932-2024

'I hadn't realised that dying was going to be so difficult.'

'You're not trying hard enough' his friends came to reply.


 Zoran Vidinic born in Skopje came to London in the late 60's. Matthew 's portrait of Zoran was a hit for Diesel Jeans. Derek Jarman was a great friend and  Zoran is seen here in Jarman's Caravaggio and as a spectacular bridesmaid in The Last of England
