Dragana Jursic – YU The Lost Country


Copyright 2014 Dragana Jursic

Photographer: Dragana Jursic (b. Yugoslavia, resides Ireland)

Publisher:  Oonagh Young gallery

Essay: Dragana Jursic

Text: English

Hardcover book, sewn binding, four-color lithography, with captions (Rebecca West/Dragana Jurisic), printed in Luxembourg

Photobook designer: Oonagh Young

Notes: Jursic documents her journey, retracing the steps of Rebecca West’s 1937 novel Black Lamb and Grey Falcon, through what was Yugoslavia, where she was born, but a “country” which no longer exists; a poignant mashup of memory and identity. Recommended.

Cheers, Doug
