Marissa Roth is a wonderful photojournalist and old friend. Quietly and unassumingly she puts herself in front of hard news: a coup in the Philippines, the LA riots, Kosovar Albanian refugees, photographing humanity in her own moving and deeply respectful manner.
On Friday, July 9th, the Museum of Tolerance in LA will host the exhibition opening for Srebrenica: Then Is Now, Fifteen Years After the Massacre, photographs by Marissa Roth.
July 11, 2010 will mark the 15th anniversary of the 5‐day massacre of over 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and teen‐age boys after the fall of the Srebrenica enclave near the end of the war in the former Yugoslavia. During two extended trips to Bosnia and Hercegovina in 2009, photojournalist Marissa Roth went to Srebrenica Municipality and related areas to meet and photograph a number of women directly affected by the massacre and the war. The exhibition will remain on display through August 3rd.
