Lost Takes is about the notorious roll of film, which returned on
24 July 1995 in The Netherlands. During the fall of the enclave
of Srebrenica in former Yugoslavia, Dutchbat lieutenant J.H.A
Rutten took pictures of the evacuation of Bosnian Muslim
civilians. When the revealing roll of film was returned to the
Netherlands the film was destroyed. Was it bad luck or did this
important, tangible evidence of what happened have to
disappear from the public eye?

The project and book had several publications and nominations,
for example The Anamorphosis Prize (US), GUP New Dutch
Photographt Talent 2018, FOTODOK Book Club #13 (w/ Bieke
Depoorter and Ad van Denderen) and winner of the Best Dutch
Book Design 2017.
