The photographs from the Infertile Grounds series are marked by trauma, historical events and human experience. the locations in the photographs are not just beautiful landscapes but sites that have strong symbolism due to their historical context and the fact that they have, in one way or another, formed the national identity of croatia. Woods, fields and rivers are part of folk tales and myths, but have also become part of a rhetoric legitimising political systems and ideologies. The meaning of many events and sites have changed due to altered circumstances, regardless of the fact that the place, even with human intervention, has remained the same, bare and similar to other places where nothing important has ever happened.
