KOSOVO AFTERMATH (Kosovo, 2006-2007)

Since the Yugoslavian civil war, the situation between ethnic Albanians and the Serbian minority in Kosovo has been tense. There are still countless traces of the outbursts of violence there, from deserted Serbian villages shattered by gunfire to the mass graves of executed Albanian Muslims. Kosovo declared its independence in February, 2008; Serbia still regards the region as one of its provinces. An international military presence keeps the two groups apart. Andrew Testa photographed contemporary Kosovo, the status of which is still unclear. He saw how public swimming pools are accessible only to a particular ethnic group, and how in the streets the photographs displayed there of the 2500 Kosovars who are still missing are bleaching from the weather.

ACID ATTACKS IN BANGLADESH (Bangladesh, 2005)

Every year in Bangladesh several hundred girls and woman are victims of an attack with caustic substances. Generally the motive is the rejection of a marriage or sexual proposal, or a fight within the family. The perpetrators, almost always men, regularly go free. The seriously maimed victims, on the other hand, are cast out by their families and forced to live by begging. The Victims of Acid Attacks Foundation in Dhaka helps and treats these women. In Bangladesh cheap bleaching agents are available on every street corner. In Pakistan and India too women are regularly doused with caustic substances. – Konolla was attacked with acid by her husband after she refused to give him permission to take another woman. She is being treated at the hospital run by the Acid Survivors Foundation (ASF) in Dhaka, which offers medical care and counseling to victims of acid attacks. – Konolla was attacked with acid by her husband after she refused to give him permission to take another woman.

THE MOKEN (2005)

THE MOKEN (2004) are people that lived from the sea. Once these sea gypsies, as they were called, roamed over the islands off the coast of Burma and Thailand. Now they are forced to live on the Surin islands, sixty kilometers off the Thai coast. They are forbidden to cut down trees to make canoes. That puts the Moken in a difficult position. On the one hand, they are simple nomads, who do not even know the word 'desire'. On the other, they can no longer escape modern society. Drink and junk food supersede their traditional fish catch. At the instigation of the Thai authorities, they are developing their lives as a tourist attraction. All the Moken survived the tsunami. Before this disaster they fled to higher ground, where they are still further removed from their traditional lifestyle.
