In September 2011 a group of photographers and writers who had covered the war in Bosnia met and decided to come back to Sarajevo on April 6th, 2012, to commemorate the beginning of the war and re-engage with the country. A meeting called ‘Sarajevo 2012’ took place, in cooperation with Memory Module.
They also decided to make a photo book about the war.
The hardback book contains 248 pages that includes the work of many of the leading photographers and writers of the time. It charts the course of the war from its beginning in April 1992 to the Dayton Peace Accord in December 1995.
The book will be launched during the Sarajevo Film Festival on July 11th, 2012.
Congratulations to Jon Jones for his editorship of this project and to all the photographers who risked so much to capture these extraordinary images that educated the world about the horrific and chilling events that occurred during this conflict. Please support them by buying this important book.

And this one comes with a very powerful presentation by Midhat Mujkic using photos from that period. A warning though, some of the pictures may be graphic.
