In 1995 in Srebrenica 8372 men aged between 12 and 75 years were killed by Serbian troops of General Ratko Mladic. The images tales the twenty years Srebrenica's commemoration of the genocide's victims. The reportage was produced in Bosnia in 2015 during the recognition's activity of that body by the forensic pathologists through the comparison of DNA. Srebrenica has been tried by the International Tribunal the greatest genocide ever happened in Europe since the Second World War Every year on 11 July at Srebrenica thousands of people from all over the world, take part in the peace march because what happened in Srebrenica will never happen again. many women, many mothers, many daughters still seek the bodies of their missing loved ones. After 20 years, many women will no longer have the hope of being able to give them a proper burial.

I am a photojournalist and I realized my reportages in many areas of the world crisis including Bosnia, Kazakhstan, uzbekistan, kyrgyzstan, india, turkish kurdistan, vietnam.
My reportages tell of the human condition after the end of a war.
The human conditions after the end of a war are never told.
For me this is an important mission.
