‘The kitchen is not only the soul and spirit of the Balkan home, it mirrors society as a whole. With this consideration in mind I decided to create a new visual concept about the peninsula, its people and their way of life. When working on the project, my main idea was to present the Balkan through a new, more intimate perspective that differs from the commonly associated with the region war and conflicts. I invite you now to be a guest at a Balkan home!’
