The project is led by Jon Jones of The Sunday Times, Gary Knight of VII Photo and photographers Ziyah Gafic and Remy Ourdan, and will see the group of photographers and writers donate their work for the upcoming photobook.
"The hardback book contains 248 pages that includes the work of many of the leading photographers and writers of the time," say the organisers. "It charts the course of the war from its beginning in April 1992 to the Dayton Peace Accord in 1995."
The book includes the work of photographers such as Nina Berman, Alexandra Boulat, Gilles Peress, Noël Quidu, Ron Haviv, Olivier Jobard, Patrick Chauvel, Christopher Morris, Eric Bouvet, Filip Horvat, Jerome Delay, James Nachtwey, Santiago Lyon, Srdjan Ilic, Tom Stoddart, Laurent Van Der Stockt, Yannis Behrakis and Anthony Loyd among many others.
The book, which will be released at the Sarajevo Film Festival in July to commemorate the war's 20th anniversary, "is now ready to be printed in Bosnia." But, say the organisers, "we need your help to make this deadline."
The photographers have so far raised 50% of the money needed to publish the book, and they have now turned to Kickstarter to find the remaining $17,800 needed.
