A unidade – Servia depois da Iuguslávia 
Only unit – Serbia in the Aftermath of Yugoslavia

Depois de viver durante cinco anos nos Balcãs, o americano radicado em Belgrado coletou essa série de flagrantes nas ruas traçando um retrato psicológico dos sérvios e da própria região que figura o espírito com que se enfrenta a radical mudança nas fronteiras e na paisagem dos costumes, tencionando conflitos relativos a identidade nacional e ao futuro a ser enfrentado.

Only Unity: Serbia In The Aftermath of Yugoslavia has emerged from five years of living and working in the Balkans; it is my personal response to the confounding atmosphere of the region. My project presents a psychological portrait of Serbs from across the Balkans as they confront a radically changed landscape within physically contracting borders. Serbia is emerging from the hangover of the 1990s, where atrocities were carried out in their name just across newborn borders, and constructive reflection about the consequences of those years is over due. I am photographing details of society that both reflect and undermine the popular Serbian creation myths.” Edited Artist Statement
