John Pilkington Review

John Pilkington presented a thought provoking talk titled ‘A Balkan Adventure’ for the members of the Arts and Literary Society on Monday evening. Having visited Yugoslavia in the 1970s John returned to explore the Balkan mountains and the surrounding countryside in 2013 for a period of five months. He talked about how many of the people remained traumatised by the war and all the rebuilding required to the many towns and villages of the former Yugoslavia. Combined with his spellbinding images of the towns, mountain scenes and the photographs of the people he met on his walk, he provided a wider understanding of the situation in the beautiful Balkans including Serbia, Bosnia and Kosovo.
