About the Book
I have been taking photographs of these lines since 2004. At first I was surprised how rarely the sky above us is without any. Straight lines in the sky speak of human dominance. They also indicate that I do not live at an end point. Ljubljana is a flyover town. I was also reminded of the time of war in Bosnia and the shelling of Belgrade. I remember hearing the bomber planes at night. We could hear them all through the night, they were loud, we knew they were there, we knew they carried death, and we knew we were not the target.
