I recently spent a number of days in Kosovo for BA High Life Magazine, and as a guest of Political Tours. I travelled around the country meeting people who shared their memories of the countrys recent attrocities. I went to Mitrovica, where there is still evidence of daily tensions. I visited a Filigree 'production line' in Prizren and I spent time in the capital Prishtina, where amongst other things I visited Neighbourhood 29, a Roma community. I met the editor of an amazing magazine called Kosovo 2.0, and I photographed Albin Kurti, leader of the Vetevendosje (Self Determination) party. There was physical evidence of the war everyewhere and it was a country of visable despair but also of a real sense of hope, which came in the shape of its youth. I was told that fifty percent of the county's population is under 25 years of age.
