Mostar, October 2011

An abandoned bank in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. As you ascend the now derelict building on the stairs with no sides, you see papers scattered, abandoned, peoples lives torn into many pieces. War broke out and the building became home to snipers. Broken glass litters the floor, untouched, unmoved for two decades, a reminder in the midst of a city rebuilding of the shattering effects of war.

Posted in response to the abandoned challenge.
