In spite of all what happened, I like to remember Brussels and Belgium with two of its ingredients: self irony and surrealism. Brussels, Belgium, September 2015 © Luca Bonacini. Copyright: the pictures on this site are the property of the author and cannot be used without permission.

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.

Nudzejma: words and people from Sarajevo

Words and people from Sarajevo: Nudzejma“Words and people from Sarajevo”, work in progress. Nudzejma Softic, working with Al Jazeera, believes that “in our life we are often exposed to the injustice that comes especially from the media and through the media”. This is the reason why she decided to professionally invest herself in the area of journalism. “Al Jazeera – she says – has provided me the opportunity to publicly declare my support for those in need, as sometimes I needed. I reached the success just through our joint motto: honest and courageous, from every angle and every side”. Nudzejma, with the support of her family, is pursuing a battle for justice in order to release her syrian stepfather Abu Hamza, detained  for more than 5 years in the Immigration Centre of Sarajevo, because accused to be a “national security threat”.
