From the series 'People'. Kerbler's black-and-white photographs are not only artistic but carry enormous ethnographic value. They are a document of the rural people of the sixties and seventies when Yugoslavia was emphasising its industrialisation and development. In contrast, agrarian areas of Haloze and Kozjansko were subject to poverty and famine, yet full of tradition and old customs, now preserved in Kerbler's photographic material.
