„People of Sarajevo“

The project, “People of Sarajevo”, shows photographs of interesting people from the streets of Sarajevo.


This photo blog first got started in November 2013 and is based on Brandon Stanton’s Humans of New York, which presented portraits of New Yorkers, along with short profiles. “People of Sarajevo” got started by the Sarajevo photographer, Imrana Kapetanović.

This project has become very popular in no time and, at this moment, it has more than 12,000 followers on Facebook.

Imrana says that the subjects she chooses for her photographs are people who attract her attention in some way and she makes special mention of her grandmother, Minka, better known as Skojevka Minka. Her photo was exhibited on November 25, 2013, and her interesting story attracted attention not just in BiH, but also in the region.

“People of Sarajevo” is an ongoing project and Imrana has announced that she plans to create thematic albums. An exhibit featuring all of the photos taken throughout the project’s duration will be organized by the end of this year.

We recommend that you visit the People of Sarajevo Facebook page – take a look at the photos, read the interesting stories about our city’s residents and get to know some interesting Sarajevans.
