Overview

An authentic view of a country at war in a completely new way -- through the eyes of those actually living inside it. Although the world has been inundated with images of the war in Bosnia since its beginning, almost all of those pictures were taken by outsiders: foreigners, journalists, and war tourists, all crossing borders with an ease not afforded those who call Bosnia home. Images made by the photographers range from the journalistic to the conceptual. In their interviews and images, each of the photographers speak to the absurdity and anguish of their circumstances, touching on vital questions: How does the artistic impulse survive in the midst of the chaos and destruction of war? How does one avoid contributing to the mythologies of war and violence? How do the images created by the media machines of the “outside” world compare to those taken by photographers trapped in the daily struggle to survive and to defend their families and friends?

The Nine Photographers featured in this book are:
Kemal Hadzic (Photographer)
Milomir Kovacevic (Photographer)
Danilo Krstanovic (Photographer)
Nermin Muhic (Photographer)
Mladen Pikulic (Photographer)
Nihad Pusija (Photographer)
Damir Sagolj (Photographer)
Sahin Sisic (Photographer)
Dejan Vekic (Photographer)

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Nine Bosnian photographers present 130 color and b & w photographs of their ravaged homeland, accompanied by statements about the process of documenting the war in Sarajevo Self-Portrait: The View from Inside, compiled by freelance photographer Leslie Fratkin. These war and postwar images will resonate particularly sharply with American viewers following September 11. Alongside his images of children playing with dolls and wooden guns in the devastated city of Zenica, Mladen Pikulic describes his decision to show "the normal life of children" during the war. Kemal Hadzic, a former Bosnian soldier, shows before-and-after images of 500-year-old Islamic architecture destroyed in the war, as well as portraits of his fellow soldiers; Danilo Krstanovic shows civilian victims lying where they fell in 1992 and people in food lines behind sniper screens. (Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    The Real Story

    The killing fields of Bosnia, like so many wars, attracted the world¿s most renowned journalists. But of all of the war correspondents who covered the war in Bosnia, none have depicted the tragedy, suffering and heroism of war as honestly as Leslie Fratkin ¿ and that¿s because, Fratkin had the foresight to realize that no outsider could tell the story of Sarajevo as well as those who were living it. Fratkin, an accomplished photographer in her own right, arrived in Bosnia to cover the war and simply set down her camera. She spent the next five years tracking down Bosnian photographers, who now live all over the world, looking at their pictures and listening to their stories. Sarajevo Self-Portrait is the culmination of her efforts. It tells the story of nine Bosnian photographers as they chronicled the destruction of their own city. Through a series of extensive interviews, which accompany their bodies of work, we hear how they struggled to hold their lenses still as their friends and families were struck down by snipers bullets, how they schemed to smuggle film into the city through and underground tunnel, and how at times they used their won urine instead of developing chemicals to make their prints. At times tear-jerking, and at other times gut-wrenchingly comical, Sarajevo Self-Portrait is one of the best, and certainly the most sensitive book to come out of the war. Anyone who wants to understand the human side of that war should buy this book.
