Alija: words and people from Sarajevo
“Words and people from Sarajevo”, work in progress. Alija Poturovic, 80 years old. Since 1990, is the mosque keeper of the Bijela Dzamija (White Mosque). This job and the religion are the most important part of his life. In his message he says that the “white mosque is a gift to the city of Sarajevo”. During the 1992-95 siege of Sarajevo, the minaret was destroyed by grenades. The new minaret is now shorter than before the war. Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, January 2014 © Luca Bonacini.
