It’s sort of a… crap. The photos themselves would probably be fine, if I wasn’t a Serb living in Serbia. Basically, the message they send is: “Serbia is a dirty, miserable, desparate, depressive, lonely, potentionaly-agressive, almost hopeless place where people harvest corn by hand, plus Serbs are all poor, they are demonstrating and fighting with police all the time.”
Even when text or photo-caption is showing a tiny bit of something different, the photos are hiding it. You don’t see Belgrade’s glamurous night life, EXIT festival (one of the best festivals in Europe, confirmed), GUČA festival (as much as I disslike it personaly), most different ethnical and cultural differences (especially in Vojvodina), natural beauties, tasty food, wines or rakijas. No joyful children or famous sportsmen.
