Splinters in the Eyes
Belgrade, Sarajevo and Zagreb, capital cities of three ex-Yugoslavian republics that were once at war, still hungover on its atrocities and repercussions. A place where ghosts of the past are forcibly pushed aside, only to reappear in more intricate forms. Blindfolded people pretending to move on - similar fates, yet so disconnected, so far apart. In these photographs I try to trace and analyze fractures and hindrances that plague this disjointed land that I call home, and to reinterpret my own relationship to it. In order to make sense of the common issues, I roam the three cities imagining them as one - a metaphorical place that serves as a backdrop to my visual explorations.
