Portraits: 2012

It’s been four years s since my last visit to Croatia. In 2012 I returned to continue documenting a war ridden town of Blata. 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 will be returning in 2013.
