This photo mybe has no art dimension, but have very very realistic dimension of orthodox faith in that region
Dear christiandrossu, pleasse go to čapljina, and ask the chief of communal firm, why are these waste dumps near the church?
Rassona said all to you.
I have no photo of church that are made into public latrines and cow houses, stables, pigsties..., but if I have that, I would put that...and all of that was in some parts of former Yugoslavia
christiandrossu, this photo says a lot of about life of orthodox and their position, and even existence in some parts of former yugoslavia... churches were destroyed, and on their places there were built parkings, markets, etc. people were kild, whole communities were moved! this photo says about that! being an orthodox christian here very often is not neither easy neither sweat, it is very difficult, there are still people who don't respect your personality nor your life, and how could you expect them to respect a church building and not to put containers infront of the church!?
this photo says about every days life and reality.
in čapljina before the WW2 there were 38% of orthodox; in 1991 there were 13%, today... I don't know,.. there is no statistics,.. but I think this photo says a lot!
God be with you!
