We are lucky enough to have several photographs on our website from Nick St. Oegger, a documentary photographer that has devoted quite some time to exploring, understanding, and documenting various aspects of Albanian life. As can be found on his website, Nick’s work “explores the relationship between people and the environments they inhabit, both urban and rural.”
We applaud his work and find his photography to be an inviting visual introduction to deeper topics that resonate in Albanian society & culture. We specifically suggest taking a look at his most recent and provocative project “Kuçedra” which examines the threat to the Vjosa river and its communities from hydropower dam projects.
While on his page you must also take a look at “Bunkerland” and “Not a Country For Dreams”. Below are a couple handpicked favorites, enjoy!
