Sarajevo Self-Portrait: The View from Inside by Leslie Fratkin

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?
