Press release: 2 Million eyes on the former Yugoslavia – @felecool & @wisslaren explore #fedjasbalkan on photographic road trip
In the 1990’s my family was forced to flee our home country Yugoslavia because of the raging civil war. We ended up in Denmark, where I have been living ever since.
Now, I am going back to the former Yugoslavian countries of Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia, to photograph some of the beautiful places of my birth country. I’m bringing a friend and we are sharing our experience with the whole world on Instagram.
May 12th 2016 I leave home for a road trip down to the former Yugoslavian Countries of Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Montenegro with Swedish Instagramer Christoffer Collin/ @Wisslaren. The purpose of the trip is to share some of the great places of my birth country, Yugoslavia, with my fellow Scandinavian and close personal friend, Chris. – As many places as we can in a week, at least. We are aiming for places I especially like to stay at and places I used to go with my family as a child. Follow our photographic journey to and through the former Yugoslavia on Instagram under the hashtag: #fedjasbalkan and on @felecool and @wisslaren. You can also follow on Facebook on my Photo by Fedja-page. And Snapchatters can join us on Felecool & Chriscollin.
