A photographic road trip through the Balkans.

The Common Routes Team of Photographers resumed activity in 2014 with the Common Routes/Balkan Project. The love for the journey, its imprint through each photographer’s personal visual and aesthetic but also the deeper need for expression through a travel interpretation are the connecting link and common philosophy of the group.
