Photographer Henry Jacobson, who previously photographed home-grown couture from Sierra Leone, has a new project up. In this series, "Sarajevo Fashion," Henry photographs the work of three fashion designers from that war-torn city, in situ. He writes:"They are Ata Omerbasic - the eldest (early thirties), Naida Katica, 26, and Adnan Corambegic, 24. They all lived in Sarajevo, staying through the whole four-year-long siege of the city-though Ata was old enough for it to be fresh in her mind (she was 18 when it started). We shot at a burned out chocolate factory (that's the burny looking one), a bombed, shelled, and shot-at retirement home that now houses gypsies and junkies (that's the big, pockmarked, weirdly colorful one), and a derelict WWII memorial (yet another brutal period in Sarajevan history-the pretty leaves)."
