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. We now have 9 confirmed writers and more are joining the project soon. They will 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 je istraživao fotografisanje Sarajeva digitalnom infracrvenom kamerom. U tom procesu razvio je novi način gledanja na grad. Njegov prvobitni fokus bila je opsežna pošumljavanja koju je grad prošao od kraja rata, ali je tokom tri mjeseca shvatio da postoji još jedna stvarnost skrivena golim okom. Fotografirajući u svakom naselju, otkrio je još jedno Sarajevo, neobično lijepo, pomalo misteriozno i ​​eterično.

Dok je razgovarao o ovim slikama sa prijateljem piscem Goranom Vrhuncem, palo mu je na pamet da postoji potencijal da napravi projekat u kojem bi fotografija inspirisala pisce da istražuju ove slike postavljajući jednostavno pitanje: Kako bi bilo DRUGO SARAJEVO?

U ovom projektu kreativni direktor će biti Denis McCready, a književni direktor Goran Vrhunc. Sada imamo 9 potvrđenih pisaca i još njih će se uskoro pridružiti projektu. Oni će preduzeti književni proces u kojem će im infracrvene slike poslužiti kao inspiracija za pisanje. Slike i njihov priloženi tekst bit će izloženi na javnoj izložbi. Projekat je takođe pogodan za objavljivanje kao knjiga.
