Photographer's Note

The eternal flames of Sarajevo. Just a decade ago, the city of Sarajevo was under seige by Serberian forces. At first, the people of the city thought the Serbians were there to protect them. Soon they realized the stark truth. Completely surrounded by artillery and mortar fire, the people of the city could not get out. Added to this was the constant sniper attacks on civillians. After three weeks of talk in Ohio, a peace agreement was finally settled. Today, every bridge has been rebuilt with the addition of two new ones. However, you can still see the scars on the side of churches and buildings*.

*Thanks Djenno for the corrections!
