'Bosnia in war and peacetime. Compelling images.' Amateur Photographer 'Bosnians contains a masterful essay by BBC's Allan Little, and harrowing eye-witness statements. But it is Lowe's photographs that stay in the memory.' British Journal of Photography 'A collection of fine photographs taken both during the war and afterwards.' The Economist 'Formally, Lowe has great reach ... searching for a depth of language with which to describe the unfathomable reality of contemporary slaughter.' 8 Magazine 'Lowe puts real faces to war and its effects ... a timely and immensely moving book.' Balkan Academic NewsReseña del editor:
A man stands at the entrance to a narrow 'sniper's corridor', struck by a shaft of light, deliberating whether or not to dash across; a couple embrace lovingly on a terrace overlooking Sarajevo; in a tavern a young man, intoxicated by wine, breaks into song while another looks on ironically; turbaned Muslims pray facing Mecca in a Bosnian meadow; a human skull is matched to a photograph of its former face. The presence of death is felt in Paul Lowe's photographs: war and its terrors are evoked in images notable for their stillness, reminding us that exploding buildings and screaming faces are only the most obvious ways of showing devastation. But here is life too, for the Bosnians have survived, mourned and moved forward. Lovers, harvesters, old men, rambunctious children and fashionable boulevardiers populate this book, as do images of snowy fields, rebuilt bridges, and parties. The accompanying text includes commentary by veteran BBC correspondent Allan Little, as well as a number of acute observations from various Balkan writers and newsmakers (along with anonymous graffiti), and deftly supplements the visual power of this work by a still-young photojournalist at the height of his powers.
