Daiber uses tilt-shift photography to make the structures look like a miniature 3D model – a method he’s used across his series YouTube Little Big World, which turns interesting, beautiful, remote or abandoned locations into ‘mini model’.
Sarajevo’s Olympic village is the latest location to get this treatment built to host the 1984 winter Olympics.
The site bears the battle scars of the 1992-1995 Bosnian war, with many structures wholly destroyed. During the conflict, the athlete’s accommodation and a hotel were turned into a de facto prison. Even more horrifyingly, the podium was used as an execution site.
Bullet holes and overgrown concrete recall this dark period of history.
