Tjentište War Memorial – Bosnia, 2013.
comment on Flickr The two fractal walls of the memorial were erected in 1971 to remember Operation Fall Schwarz, otherwise known as the Battle of the Sutjeska. The military action took place during World War II and saw Axis forces attempt to rout a group of Yugoslavian forces and capture Tito, their leader. The complicated battle saw most of the Yugoslav forces able to escape, including Tito, foiling the Nazis’ plan, which was actually the second attempt at the same strategy. While the the Axis’ plan was a failure, it was not without tragedy. Over 7,000 people were killed, mostly just citizens who could not escape with the majority of the Yugoslavian military forces. To remember both the Nazi failure and the tragic loss of life, the abstract war memorial was constructed. Like many of the memorials constructed in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the 70’s the monument is an angular abstraction constructed from bleak grey cement. However despite the tragic roots and brutalist construction, the majestic strangeness of the Tjentiste War Memorial cannot be denied.

Klima – Sarajevo (Bosnia) 2013.
comment on Flickr After taking this picture at an automobile mechanic, I asked what KLIMA meant. I was told that it means either: the weather/ air conditioning / the mood... the atmosphere. This third option gave the title of the book on Bosnia, photographed a hundred years after the attack in Sarajevo, which should be released by the end of this year:-) Watch it @ Gallery Minimal canaque,bw,bosnia,bosnie,bosniaandherzegovina,analog,35,sarajevo,klima,book All Rights Reserved

Lukomir's stećci - Bosnia, 2013.
comment on Flickr Stećci are monumental medieval tombstones that lie scattered across the landscape of Bosnia and Herzegovina. These are the tombstones of those who lived between the 11th and 15th centuries and refused to swear allegiance to any kingdom but their own or to be swayed by any influence. Instead they stayed true to themselves and to what they could find only within themselves and in Bosnia. They are the country’s most legendary symbol. canaque,stećci,lukomir,bosnia All Rights Reserved
