The Galerija 11/07/95 (Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina) is the first memorial gallery in the country. The entire gallery is dedicated to the July 1995 massacre in Srebrenica, where more than 8,300 Bosnian Muslims were slaughtered by the Serbian army. The museum employs powerful photographs and documentaries of the genocide to educate guests of the atrocities committed during the month of July.
The gallery also features different rotating exhibitions. During my visit, the “Greetings From Sarajevo 1993” exhibition (above, or here) was on display, featuring the work of Trio (Dalida and Bojan Hadžihalilović). The exhibition consists of thirty-six postcards parodying different icons and artists designed to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Sarajevo Olympics in 1994.
You can read more about the exhibition here and here. The below image was taken from here.
Juno Calypso's refreshingly interesting and vaguely futuristic photo series titled 'The Honeymoon' documents a one-woman honeymoon with great emphasis on the colors blue and pink. The series is beautiful, cohesive, striking, and the syrupy, shiny textures add a really cool vibe to the work.
George Nebieridze's photo series '15 spans a year in Berlin. The photos paint a beautiful picture of youth. The colors, architecture, beauty bring us into a world of edginess and great angles. The photos below are all incredibly striking, and they all have their own particular brand of lovely weirdness.
Valerie Phillips, known for her previous 8 photo books, challenges societal standards for youth and girlhood with photos that highlight the youth. Some photos resonate a little more than others, and I feel as though Phillips should potentially have a bit of a tighter grasp on what draws that resonance, after 8 other photo books.. But regardless, the photos are below. Personally, the first and last really draw my attention.
Itallian photographer Raffaele Petralla just unveiled a new photo series documenting the secrecy and danger of being transgender in Bangladesh. The gorgeous photos below show the beauty of a highly stigmatized sect of people.
I love the over arching color themes of light pink (and the feminine undertones) paired with dark muted city photos, and the teal undertones in a lot of shots.
