I grew up in Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina. When I was in my twenties, the country of my youth became a war zone and I spent the duration of the siege of Sarajevo honing my survival skills. In 1999, I moved to Montréal where, for eight years, I worked as an engineer in aerospace industry until I gave up on my engineering career to devote the time fully to photography.
Subsequently, I completed BFA in Photography and currently I'm a Master of Fine Arts candidate in Studio Arts at Concordia University in Montreal.
My work has been exhibited in the United States, Cuba, Canada, and Bosnia-Herzegovina. My photographs appeared in The New York Times, The Paris Review, International Herald Tribune, Chicago Tribune, Granta, Descant, BH Dani and others.
