Overview participating exhibitions
The Bosnian capital Sarajevo is a city of contrasts. It is scarred by conflict, but is also the backdrop for modernistic new buildings and skyscrapers. The rush of its daily traffic would seem to belie the still fresh memories of the dark days in which people hardly dared to go out on the street for fear of snipers and bombs. In this city in motion, which at the same time has something unchanging and everlasting about it, individuals seek an identity: they, like their city itself, are engaged in assuming a new identity.
The young photographer Matteo Bastianelli (Italy, 1985) graduated from the Scuola Romana di Fotografia in 2009. Since 2007 he has been working on long-term projects on homelessness in Rome and New York, the living conditions of Croatian and Bosnian Roma, and the consequences of the genocide in Bosnia. He received the Canon Young Photographer Prize in 2010 for his personal, socially engaged work.
