PHOTO PROJECT ‘THIS LAND IS MY LAND’ SHORTLISTED FOR KRANJ PHOTO FEST 2022

January 10, 2022

My photo project ‘This Land Is My Land‘ was shortlisted for this year’s Kranj Foto Fest and it will be exibited among the group shows around the historical centre of Kranj in Slovenia. This project aims to inform the local population of the rich cultural heritage of the migrants that are currently stuck on the Balkan route and who are routinely depicted in the media as trespassers, as ‘the unwanted,’ and as dangerous. This series of portraits of migrants that come from countries in Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa visually fuses their itinerant status with their enchanting cultural background.
