  • Bosnian civil war

    A terrified young man committed to a mental institution in central Bosnia is abandoned by the nursing staff. The staff fled when the asylum came under intense Serbian shelling. With every shell that hit the building, his sense of intense bewilderment and fear is heightened. The inmates were left to fend for themselves without food or clothing or any means of sanitation, for a week. The combination of teeth- juddering exploding shells, high-pitched screams and the stench of defecation, urination, and fear induced vomit from the inmates was one of the more upsetting situations that I have been in. If one is familiar with the Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch’s work and his interpretation of hell, you are not far off the mark.

  • Bosnian civil war

    Blood is spattered high into the ceiling of a central Bosnian farmhouse. An elderly married couple had been sprayed at point blank range with high velocity machine gun fire in a grisly execution by Bosnian Serb Forces in the Village of Uzdol, Bosnia. Their heads exploded instantly, spraying arterial blood onto the walls. The white fragments at the bottom left of the screen are the shattered remains of the old couple’s skulls. Although I was present when the bodies of the old couple were still lying in situ, the image was far too horrific for anyone to publish and also, in my mind, quite unnecessary to photograph. However as I turned and was about to leave with the British United Nations soldiers who had the awful task of clearing up this ungodly horror, one of the young soldiers carrying the remains looked back at the wall and said ‘fuck me mate just look at all that fucking Claret up the bleeding wall’ (claret being slang for blood). For some reason I had been so preoccupied and consumed with the dilemma of how I could shoot this image in a presentable way I had failed to see the horrific message so graphically painted by a Kalashnikov hand on the wall. It struck me that this image was so much more powerful without the couple’s bodies and perfectly acceptable for any publication. Your imagination runs away with you at the thought of what went before! This is a lesson to any budding so-called war photographer that you don’t have to stick your lens and nose into the gore to get a truly shocking picture of war.
