The People of Blata: 2013
In 2013 I returned to Croatia with high hopes of finishing my seven year project, documenting a war ridden village 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. Much progress was made in 2012, but I had to return this year to do more work.
