Project Description

Wiċċna / Our Face will be a high-quality, portable book of two hundred lith-printed portraits, a dynamic and intimate snapshot of the diverse faces that inhabit and pass through an island.

The face. This open suitcase of mine, revealing, at a glance, origins, departures, journeys, interruptions.

– Virginia Monteforte

Whether a stepping-stone, a refuge or a permanent home, an island is not an island unless people come and go, bring and take, cast anchor and embark. Each portrait will be accompanied by a short statement taken from the individual’s answer to the often unsettling and complicated question “Where are you from?”

The book will be a culmination of long years of personal exchanges over Bosnian coffee, of shooting in the studio, of long hours of hand-printing in the darkroom, all of which has fine-tuned Reljic’s eye for capturing one’s personality and natural disposition from behind the lens.

Designed in collaboration with Kotba Calleja, the book will include essays by Alexandra Pace, Philippe Parizot and Virginia Monteforte, prose by Walid Nabhan, and poetry by Leanne Ellul and Antoine Cassar.
