Marking the tenth anniversary of the signing of the Dayton Peace Accord ,
HOST presents the first London showing of BOSNIANS by intern a t i o n a l l y
acclaimed photographer Paul Lowe.
Spanning more than a decade, BOSNIANS is an intimate, highly personal
study of the re c o n s t ruction of a the people and their nation.
In Bosnia from the beginning of the conflict in 1992, Paul Lowe journ e y s
t h rough the devastated cities of Sarajevo, Sre b renica, Gorazde and Mostar.
But Loweâ€™s relationship with the country endures far beyond the conflict. His
stunning black and white photographs capture life rising from catastrophe, as
Bosnians survive, mourn and move forw a rd. Lovers, refugees reclaiming their
homes, children, old men and fashionable youth populate this work, as do
snowy fields, rebuilt bridges and parties.
Panos photographer Paul Lowe divides his time between Sarajevo and
London. His book B o s n i a n s, on which this exhibition is based, was published
earlier this year.
