Dry stone but I love him


On Pelješac, a peninsula in southern Croatia, some villages and houses are completely abandoned. Traces of a lost time can be found in the surrounding lands. Communist Yugoslavia, wars and the rise of modern time incited people to leave their ancestral homes forever. Now way less densely populated than before, the inhabitants of this area feel connected with the land and sea they call their home. They live together with them and a lot of inhabitants are occupied with what nature can give them.

'Dry stone but I love him' is a work in progress about this phenomenon. It shows the remnants of the past and way of life of contemporary people.
