SNAPCHOTS AFTER THE WAR
BY SANJIN HADZALIC
Sanjin Hadzalic is a documentary photographer who was born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, currently living in the Netherlands.
"We had to leave our home country of Bosnia, due to the ongoing war (1992-1995). We barely took any photographs with us to our new 'home' country, the Netherlands. The memories of home were fading and we had no records to remind us of those better days. We entered a new country and started a new life".
Snapshots After the War contains family pictures of those first years as a refugee taken by Sanjin's parents and rephotographed by Sanjin.
"I was fascinated by those first years. Adapting to a new culture, learning a new language and managing to survive without jobs and with the little money we had. From those first years I remember beeing very close with my parents, we did everything together and we were very happy".
The presented project was selected from a spontaneous submission made by Sanjin Hadzalic. Our aim is to disseminate and bring to light telling work of emergent or young photographers.
