Borjana Nikolić

Southeastern Europe is a mix of ethnicities, religions and traditions existing on the foundation of different cultural practices and politics.  The centuries of Ottoman rule on the Balkan peninsula had a profound effect on the culture and populations of the region. As a person born and raised in the Balkans, I have been fascinated by the nuances in the culture -what makes us different and what makes us similar, since my earliest childhood. My journey focused mostly on exploring cultures through music, food, fashion, tradition, history and lifestyles.
