“I spent a few months in the Balkans over 2016/2017. The mountains, the people, and especially the older ladies who were always watching out for me, made me fall in love with the whole area. I didn’t know much about any of the places I intended to go, so throughout the trip learnt a lot about the former Yugoslavia and the current political situations in each country.
The night I first tried rakija, in a couple’s flat in Belgrade with a small group of super sweet people who really liked Men At Work, was one of my favourites. The light and the landscapes made photography a total treat, plus it was the first time I’d seen a lot of snow and had to get around on frozen ground. I fell over a bit but it was kind of fun and worth it.”
