The People of Blata: 2006-08
In 2006 I started photographing, interviewing, and recording the stories of each villager who returned to his or her farm in Croatia. The ethnic cleansing, known as Operation Storm, or Oluja, could not deter these people from returning to their homes, even if they only had ruins to return to.
I spent three months in Europe meeting different people in order to make some sense of how this project might turn out. Here are select pictures photographed between 2006 and 2008.
