This event takes us on a photographic journey through the towns and cities of post-conflict former Yugoslavia in this extensive look inside Chris’s previously unseen 24-year archive from the region. John McDougall examines the wider implications of the war alongside the ripples which are still felt today both in the Balkans and internationally.
