A selection of images based on a 'dérive' through the post-conflict city of Sarajevo - focusing primarily on observations of trauma within the fabric of the city. Many scars starkly remain over twenty years after the Seige of Sarajevo. There are paradoxical attempts to preserve, reconstruct, conceal and erase within the city limits, hemmed in by the mountains from which Bosnian-Serb forces held position in the longest siege in recorded history 1992-1996. Part documentation, part interpretation - the images pose as fragments from a complex set of ethnocultural, political and situational narratives which will forever remain unresolved, partially obscured and half-remembered.
A selection of these collections of 'drifts' will be published as small books.
