In 2002, I wanted to photograph the steles "bogomiles" near Stolac (BiH) Ld: Radimlja, seen in an old number of Archéologia of the years 1960.

I have acquire of SONY DSC-F707, knowing within the framework of work his ancestor the 505 (who is always in activity!) and filled with enthusiasm by its side "bridge", its directional optics out of ZEISS glass, its 5Mo (a must at the time), its possibilities for the night (Night framing and nightshot), its robustness 'metal case) and a certain weight which allows a good catch in hand.

That enabled me to take many photographs under particular angles, almost impossible for other apparatuses. In particular vertical catches without me to twist the blow or to catch an evil of kidney. But also to photograph files.

Through Internet and various sources of information, I had the impression in 2002, that the area of Stolac in Herzegovine was not stabilized yet. I had a certain apprehension.
All that was quickly dissipated and I fell literally under the charm from these countries and these people.

I accomplished a voyage of about fifteen days each year since this date. Wounds of the very visible war in 2002 (10 years after the beginning of the conflict!) are bandaged little by little. But even in 2005 the area of Mostar still is very damaged.

I am not at all a professional photographer. I do not have any theoretical photographic culture.
F707 makes it possible to raise this obstacle and to be devoted about it.

For me the photograph is before a whole memory, a testimony.

I have 5 great centers of interests concerning the "photograph":
- Photographs of the stecci (Steles of BiH, Croatia and Serbia);
- Let us modillons, corbels and other statues inclusent in the walls and roofs, particularly in the Romanesque art.
- Strange places and situations;
- What I like or what causes my interest at the time.
