Dušan Lazić - Vojka, Serbia (Global Lives Project, 2009)

Excerpt from the Global Lives Project The subject of our Serbia shoot is 57-year-old Du?an Lazi?, a beekeeper in Vojka, Serbia. He is an all around great personality—friendly, outgoing and talkative. Du?an's situation, financially, is not entirely typical of Serbia; he is on the lower end of the scale, earning on average $150 a month (about $5 per day). He trained and worked as an engineer but left or lost his jobs over the years, so five years ago he turned to beekeeping to make money. In the evenings, he sings and plays percussion with his friends in a rock band, VIS Vremeplov (Time machine), which covers old pop-rock hits from Serbia and the former Yugoslavia. As a 57-year-old, he has experienced much of the events that have shaped Serbia in the past half-century, from the rise and fall of Communism to the Yugoslav wars in the 1990's and now Serbia's trials and tribulations with independence.
