Most of the photographs are of people: of refugees, prisoners of war and the relatives of the missing. But this is not so much a book about victims as about survivors. His genre is of the compelling portrait, the captured glance, the giveaway gesture. It is a book about resilience, about the capacity to survive in the most adverse of circumstances. Also seen are musicians, soldiers, artists, shopkeepers - even a grandmother driving a tank - nuns with video camera and a cellist in the ruins of Sarajevo. Paul Harris is the author/photographer of "Somebody Else's War". -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Von Bonita L. Davis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I found this book hidden in the corner of the post exchange on Eagle Base in Tuzla. From the moment I opened its pages I knew that I would never put it down. Many volumes speak about the political, social, economic and ethnic divisions which caused the war in the Balkans. Cry Bosnia is not a dry history book which feeds the intellect with numerous facts and figures. Paul Harris, through his photography, has allowed the people of the region speak to us through their hearts. It is through the pictures and commentary that Cry Bosnia speaks to the hearts and minds of those distant witnesses of the Balkan War.
Harris doesn't spare us as he shows us the pictures of both human and physical destruction of a land of beauty. When we view those pictures we see faces of grief, despair and rage. At the same time we see hope, courage, laughter and the spirit of tenaciousness as a people attempt to rebuild their lives in the midst of a senseless war. When we see these pictures we see the ugliness of our humanity. Bosnia reflects the beast which is within us as the "world" allowed slaughter to go on as is asserted in the text. If anything Cry Bosnia can teach us to move beyond our negative spirits and recover the good from within us. Such a reflection from a war should move us to be more accountable to one another as our world gets smaller and smaller.

"Cry Bosnia" is definitely a good "coffee table book"- it's oversized and has lots of photographs. At the same time, it's so much more. "Cry Bosnia" tells the sad story of the Bosnian War, which is now fading from the collective memory in the face of the Iraq War, in the words of the people who were there. Through Paul Harris' haunting photos and his interviewees, we see how the world stood by as the strong took advantage of the weak. If you're interested in the Bosnian War, contemporary history, or human drama generally, then this book is for you.

An excellent source for the Balkan war in Bosnia. It includes excellent rare photos and journalism writting. A good book for anyone interested in this recent piece of history.

This is a replacement for the one I had in Bosnia (1996); heartbreaking photographs of people in civil war in the heart of Europe.
