“In this work I have documented the present situation of six unrecognized republics, giving a more personal testimony to the multi-layered histories of these forgotten entities. It is a complex topic involving international actors whose active/passive, from top down approach, determines how these entities continue to coexist. I have collected stories of people whose collective drama is not only a trace left on their experiences of war, but also the kind that remains embedded in buildings and landscapes that continue to bear witness to what’s left of the past.”   Vangjush Vellahu
