December 14th 2015 will mark the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Dayton Agreement, the treaty that brought an end to the Bosnian War. This new book, the result of a long-term project by photographers Stéphanie Borcard and Nicolas Métraux, aims to give a face to the cities and landscapes whose names are familiar in the collective memory. Grey Skies Black Birds also presents the faces of the country itself, examining the impact of the post-war situation on the individuals born before, during and after the conflict.
