TRACKS_01_SARAJEVO (Bosnia and Herzegovina, 2008)

TRACKS is a series of wanderings around the world by photographer Vittorio Mortarotti. The goal is not to discover a place, or even an identity, but chiefly to experience the realization that we are always under way. Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia Herzegovina, was the first destination. With his camera Mortarotti wandered through 'sniper alley', the infamous fifteen kilometer long strip from Butmir to the center of Sarajevo. During the Yugoslavian war this was the only route to food, medicine and weapons for thousands of Bosnians, but in traveling it they exposed themselves to heavy Serbian fire. These horrors are to be seen in the photographs of Bosnian film material from 1992, images which will forever be linked with 'sniper alley'.
