Et la fete continue: While, during summer, we were visiting, with the ngo I was working with, roma families in Prizren in order to convince the parents to send their kids to the school, we were passing from neighborhoods full of children running around, laughing, screaming playing. For me it was a surprise that although the situations of life there were not good the children seemed to be the happiest i had ever seen. This girl was playing with the rest of the children, she stopped for a while, looked at me seriously and then she joined the rest of the kids... et la fete continue. (Prizren, July-August 2007)

Watergun: He was selling waterguns near the fountain in Prizren. It was really hot and kids around him were throwing shots of water to each other with the waterguns had just bought from him. This photo is a gift to the Purple Sobranie (Prizren, July-August 2007)

The dream is only a single moment: A saturday evening while walking in Plemetina. (Plemetina, July-August 2007)

Tales and songs. During summer there were a lot of marriages who took place in Prizren. Whenever I was walking out of the house of my host family. I could see people playing music and getting ready for another marriage. It was nonstop music from morning till night. It was just enough to hear the music to know that someone was getting married. I loved the enthusiasm that those musicians could spread to people around them just by starting to play their music (Prizren, Kosovo, June-August 2007)

Ulysses: This man a Sunday in the old market in Mitrovica selling old shoes and trying to repair old electric brooms. So concentrated in what he was doing. I had the feeling that the old market is just a small stop for him and his long trip. And then he will start traveling again. And somewhere else far away someone will see him maybe selling old teddybears and still be concentrated repairing broken torches this time. (Mitrovica, Kosovo, December 2007)

Bringing the water. The summer 2007 was extremely hot. Some days even the only source of water was drying out and we had to rely on KFOR suplies. Here the girls were carrying the water that was way too heavy for just one of them. (Plemetina, between May 2007 and January 2008)

The shower. In hot Plemetina all the kids loved cold showers once we had some water. Only muslim girls couldn?t get undressed in public. Thats why they were getting wet with their clothes on and later they were drying out in the sun. (Plemetina, between May 2007 and January 2008)

Water games. It was a long, hot summer. Once we got some water, the kids were doing their best to invent the craziest ways to get themselves wet and happy. Hot and dirty, I was wishing to just go play water games with them. (Plemetina, between May 2007 and January 2008)

Little break. I took this picture in front of the house, where I was living for eight months with a Roma family. The man sitting here, resting from sun is Djemalj; he is a man, who can fix anything. (Plemetina, between May 2007 and January 2008)

Pure laugh. I was taking a picture of a couple of kids. They always become verry stiff, but this time one of them was running to make it for the picture. The kid felt right in front of us, what made the rest of them laugh naturally. (Plemetina, between May 2007 and January 2008)

Have a nice day. Many places I have seen, but never anything quite like Plemetina. It is a small village in Kosovo, where crazy and happy kids were making me laugh for the whole eight months of my stay in that place. (Plemetina, between May 2007 and January 2008)
