A Country Ain’t Too Much To Love

Bosnia and Herzegovina, 2018 – 2022

A Country Ain’t Too Much To Love explores life in today’s post-war Bosnia and Herzegowina thereby focusing on a young generation whose only link to the conflict is through the memory of others as well as through the still visible alterations left behind in their surroundings. Almost three decades after the end of the war, facades covered with bullet holes, land mines and contaminated soil as well as a policy of ethno-political segregation are silent reminders of the past and reinforce the notion of a divided country. The heritage of the youth is inseparably connected to the question of guilt. The ease which youth brings along is yet shattered by the trauma of past events, thereby it is also becoming a symbol for the struggles of the country’s future.

This long-term project is a collaboration with Italian photographer Carlo Lombardi.
