new sarajevo

With the sudden economic development of Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina came the international universities, currently three of them located side by side on the same street in a small town outside of Sarajevo called Ilidza. The majority of international students come from Turkey and many stay and marry locals. What started as a quick portrait session of my students for the Visual Art department, ended with continuing to photograph them during lessons for three years, 2010-2014.
