Jens Olof Lasthein – Moments in Between
Children playing in trenches in Skopje. A street vendor selling fruit and veg in a war-torn block in Gorazde. An old man entering his apartment building in Srebrenica. In the shadow of the Balkan War: Lasthein explores the everyday life in the former Yugoslavia during the war. It is the moments between after the ethnic cleansing or bombing raids. It is about life during war. A stop in the killing and a media withdrawal doesn't mean the Balkan war is at an end. Jens Olof Lasthein's book deals with daily life in the shadow of a war. Between shellings, after ethnic or before a shot is fired. Featured in Parr/ Badger - The Photobook: A History Vol.2.
