During the summer of 2022, Denis McCready explored photographing Sarajevo using a digital infrared camera. In the process, he developed a new way of looking at the city. His initial focus was the extensive reforestation the city had undergone since the end of the war, but over three months, he realized there was another reality hidden from the naked eye. While photographing in every neighbourhood, he discovered another Sarajevo, strangely beautiful, somewhat mysterious, and ethereal.

While discussing these pictures with a writer friend, Goran Vrhunc, it occurred to him there was potential to create a project where photography would inspire writers to explore these pictures asking a simple question: What would ANOTHER SARAJEVO be like?

In this project, Denis McCready will be the creative director and Goran Vrhunc the literary director. The intention is to invite 10 to 15 local writers to undertake a literary process where the infrared pictures will serve as the inspiration for them to write. The pictures and their attached text will be showcased in a public exhibit. The project also lends itself to be published as a book.

Tokom ljeta 2022. godine, Denis McCready istraživao je fotografiranje Sarajeva koristeći digitalnu infracrvenu kameru. U procesu je razvio novi način gledanja na grad. Njegov početni fokus bio je obimna reflorestacija koju je grad pretrpio od kraja rata, ali tokom tri mjeseca shvatio je da postoji još jedna stvarnost skrivena golom oku. Dok je fotografisao u svakom kvartu, otkrio je drugo Sarajevo, čudno lijepo, pomalo misteriozno i efierno.

Razgovarajući o ovim slikama sa prijateljem piscem, Goran Vrhunc, shvatio je da postoji potencijal za stvaranje projekta u kojem bi fotografija inspirisala pisce da istraže ove slike postavljajući jednostavno pitanje: Kako bi JOŠ JEDNO SARAJEVO izgledalo?

U ovom projektu, Denis McCready će biti kreativni direktor, a Goran Vrhunc književni direktor. Namjera je pozvati 10 do 15 lokalnih pisaca da preduzmu književni proces gdje će infracrvene slike služiti kao inspiracija za njihovo pisanje. Slike i pridruženi tekst će biti prikazani na javnoj izložbi. Projekat se također može objaviti kao knjiga.
