Photographer's Note

Dubrovnik survived the bombing of the Yugoslav People's Army but it is uncertain if it will survive the onslaught of tourists. The local inhabitants whose families have lived within the city's walls for centuries are abandoning the city, having chosen to live elsewhere. Why? Because in Summer it is not unusual for four or five cruise ships to dock outside the city and for thousands of visitors to crowd the narrow old streets. To their numbers one must add all of those who come in yachts and overland in cars and buses.
The local people and their genteel way of life are swamped. No wonder they choose to abandon their family homes. A sad outcome. Soon enough, without its inhabitants, Dubrovnik will become a theme park.
