Women Of Sarajevo Revisited

Photographs by Tom Stoddart

  • Share This:
April 5, 2012 is the 20th anniversary of the beginning of the Siege of Sarajevo. For this anniversary, our Reportage photographer Tom Stoddart recently returned to Sarajevo, where he produced some of the best photographs of the war in the early 1990’s, to photograph some of the women that he originally photographed 20 years ago.

Tom worked with British journalist Glyn Strong, who interviewed all the women. Glyn's extensive text is available in full from her directly, and we can provide contact details on request. 

This site shows you the before & after photos of the women they have photographed and interviewed. One of the women now lives in Amsterdam, so was photographed there in January 2012. Another now lives in Australia with her son, so the photos of them are ones that Tom did in 2005, but the journalist has done a new interview to accompany that.

A full edit of 70 images (archive and new) is available on request.
