In 2002, seven years after the end of the Yugoslavian Homeland War (1991 - 1995) I visited the Croatian city of Zadar. I was struck by this image. A bulletin board with mixed content: orbituaries and a soccer game anouncement, footed with garbage and next to a window with a 'beheaded' tailor dummy. Not to get too depressed by this image full of symbolism, the LG airconditioning logo winks. I categorized this shot as Lifestyle & Culture.
Photography has done at least as much to deaden conscience as to arouse it.
- Susan Sontag, in 'On Photography' (1977)
