FYRM (2016)

A month before the UK voted to leave European Union I travelled to FYR of Macedonia to document a country in transition. The country was undergoing large scale redevelopment in a bid to gain full membership to the EU. 

As a previous member of the Soviet aligned Yugoslavia, the government were carrying out mass regeneration of the capital city, Skopje. Replacing the communist style architecture with that more aligned with European styles. The name itself, Macedonia, is contested by neighbours Greece. 

I spent two weeks capturing daily life and exploring a country trying to figure out its identity and assert its place in Europe.
