Old photos of my place of birth, Kolimer and the families, who lived there

The photos following this text are ones I took between 1961 and 1963. Even as a small boy, I was interested in photography and bought myself my first camera, a PIONIR. I often used to visit my birthplace with the camera and take photos of many of the people in the village, distributing copies of the photos that turned out well simply for the pleasure of doing so. The camera I had then was very simple and cheap, but the only one I could afford. I was thrilled to come across my old photos again in the collections of the people still living there when I later returned to research and collect information and photos from that time.

Although I had never given a thought to whether I would ever need the negatives to those photos again at the time, I had rolled them up carefully, put them in small aluminium containers and kept them in a safe place to protect them from external influences. They spent the past 50 years in the suitcases of my youth and have travelled far and been stored in many basements and lofts, which is why they also survived the war of the 1990s unscathed. I have my relation Stipe/Stijepan Jakovina to thank for taking care of these suitcases and sending them to me in 2013 via my school friend Milan Milinovic, from Boljanic.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Stipe, from Tuzla, for keeping them safe and Milan Milinovic for bringing them here. Apart from a handful that were a little damaged because mice had got to them as they were not as well wrapped as the rest, I have meanwhile digitised, retouched and restored all of the negatives to eliminate signs of aging. Some of them now form part of the family photo albums. The photos on this page are my favourites.
