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.

Alen: people and words from Sarajevo

Words and people from Sarajevo: Alen“Words and people from Sarajevo”, work in progress. Alen is an excellent pianist and opera singer. And most of all – for me – a very good friend. He lived and studied music in Sarajevo and his dream was always to live thanks to the music. Unfortunately he had to leave his beloved country because of lack of opportunities. After many years, thanks to his determination he went to Italy (his second country…) where he is now working as a singer. Bosnia and Herzegovina, February 2011 © Luca Bonacini.

Big celebration in Sarajevo: national football team goes to Brazil

Almost 10.000 of people joyfully invaded streets and squares of Sarajevo to celebrate, cheerfully and all night long, the Bosnia-Herzegovina qualification to the next football world cup in Brazil. For many Bosnians, the historic success represent a rare cause for celebration in a daily life marked by dramatic unemployment rate (almost 50%) and ethnic divisions.

The ironic notice “Skupljam pare za Brazil” (I collect money to go to Brazil) showed by a group of football fans, reminds us the local economic reality as well as the amazing ability of Bosnian to face hard life with good humour.

Patients and doctors sing, play, enjoy together during the opening of a mental health Centre in central Bosnia, supported by the Swiss Cooperation. The aim of the project is to struggle against stigmatisation: who is the doctor ? who is the patient ? Mental health care is a very sensitive issue in Bosnia and Herzegovina especially because it is deeply related to the 1992-95 conflict and, more recently, to the deterioration of the economic situation.
