foto 8 exhibition over

It has been a great couple of weeks with the story of the men who survived the genocide in Srebrenica in July 1995 exhibited at the foto 8 gallery in London.

Thanks to everybody who came by as well as for the round table discussion the following day of the opening. Mary Robert (Richmond University) and Neven Andjelic (Regents College) sat on the panel with me and I thought we had a great discussion on the topic.

The story got reviewed and listed in Time Out, in the Amateur Photographer Magazine in the UK and an interview was published on the foto.no site, a Norwegian photo website. It also got written about in Sandefjords Blad newspaper and at the website of Bosnian women in Sweden. Here it got translated into Swedish as well as Bosniak!

The feedback has been overwhelming and there are some great magazines and newspapers that are wanting to publish this story, watch this space for more news later.

This project is by no means a finished project and I continue to work with Clare Cook on it. We will add posts to our blog Talking Bosnia with new entries being posted shortly.

Again, thanks to Webster University Geneva for supporting this project.
