Biography

   

Suleiman Bijedic (b. 1988) is a documentary photographer born in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He lives in Italy where he came as a child with his family that fled the conflict in Bosnia in 1992.

His interests focus mainly on how habits and culture define people of a nation, through the observation of individuals that with their motivations and choices are crafting their own reality in adverse political and economic circumstances. 

Steaming from this curiosity, in 2015 he travelled to Brazil, on behalf of an Italian NGO, where he worked on its first major photographic project: "Por que não entra?"(‘Why don’t you come in?’). 

In 2016 he went back to Bosnia with the idea to explore and report up-close what the brutal war of the 90's -which he witnessed as a child- left behind. His journey in Bosnia culminates in the work "Odavle samo u harem - In memoriam Abdulah Boskailo” which is still in progress.
