Croatia in 35mm

About this time last year, I took my first trip east of the Adriatic into Southeast Europe. Croatia was a country I had known little about, for better or for worse, and I naively set about to learn its ways first-hand. To my surprise, I was not particularly wooed by the seafood-focused mediterranean cuisine or the gorgeous rolling landscape or crystal blue waters. What drew my interest most was the story of the people; one united through pain and dripping with subtle but powerful hope for the future.
