Darko: words and people from Sarajevo

Words and people from Sarajevo: Darko“Words and people from Sarajevo”, work in progress. A tribute to Darko, “the best waiter in town”. During endless, loud and smoky nights, Darko must struggle to make his way through a flood of customers squeezed in a packed Celtic Pub. Even on the crowded nights of ex-Yu rock concerts, Darko, perfectly dressed with traditional kilt, miraculously finds you a place to stay…sometimes behind the bar counter. Always with a smile and  life has not always been easy. The beer and the four-leaf clover represent his wishes to all and – I guess – a tribute to a (not so) regular customer.

Amira: words and people from Sarajevo

1403amiradyptic“Words and people from Sarajevo”, work in progress. Amira is an activist who thinks that is the responsibility of each believer to struggle for better life and better future. “I always see silent people accepting passively the social and economic situation”. For this reason Amira, married and mother of three children, comes almost every day in front of the bosnian presidency building to protest against corruption and lack of political action: “corruption goodbye” (korupcija zbogom), it’s her message. A very positive attitude despite the lack of concern of part of the population. Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, March 2014 © Luca Bonacini.

Bakir: words and people from Sarajevo

Words and people from Sarajevo: Bakir“Words and people from Sarajevo”, work in progress. I met Bakir in front of a “kafana penzioneri” in Vratnik district of Sarajevo. At that time I was interested on stories and feelings about the war. I quickly learned that is not easy at all to talk about this painful past. “It’s too difficult to speak about the war”, he told me in french. Bakir, football player before the war, spent a after war period in France. Afterwards he came back to his beloved town. People want to look towards the future and this is a political message too… Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, February 2011 © Luca Bonacini.
