Firefighters

These photos depict the heroic Belgrade firefighters, brave people who face incredible challenges. In Belgrade, firefighters work long 12-hour shifts as they face danger, death and the unexpected each day. They come from many backgrounds and have the most unusual life stories. I followed them for four months, documenting the waiting and the action, to find out what makes a man get up every morning to do a job with low pay and little recognition. I witnessed powerful bonds of friendship and trust, forged in danger and stress, that unite them into a remarkable team of professionals.
I would like to express my gratitude to the First Troop of Fire Brigade Belgrade and their commander Zoran Stojcic. Their courage and faith are an example to all of us.
