About the series: 7 Days of Silence is a series of photographs taken in the artist’s birthplace, Vukovar, a small town on the east of the Croatia which was destroyed in the war twenty years ago and renewed after ten years. Before the devastation, Vukovar was small provincial town with beautiful architecture and soul, next to the river, Danube. Vukovar has become a strange mix of ruins of beauty that still lives along with new buildings. There is a silence in every street that you pass and every field that you walk by. Despite everything, there is some form of grace and peace that still lives on.
