The Balkans Circuit
I was backpacking around the Balkans for 2.5 weeks, from May 17th - June 3rd, 2018. I did a circuit from Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia. Shot everything on a Fujica STX-1N with Kodak 200 and Kodak 400 Gold film, and a Sears 35rf rangefinder on Ilford 400 XP film. Everything was developed at Downtown Camera Toronto and slightly touched up on Adobe Lightroom. You can check out my photos here.
I created a photobook called "I was on the hunt for ćevapi" that includes most of my shots from the trip to explain my reasoning behind going to Eastern Europe.
I also did a lot of traveling BJJ - tried to drop into a gym for every country I visited. I met a lot of great people and learned that people really enjoyed no-gi and leg locks over there. And only submissions dictated a real win in competitions.
