Coming in 2015

In 2013, Kevin Shannon walked across Serbia. Twice.

Walking alone and carrying not much more than a camera, smartphone, spare clothes and sleeping bag he explored the country’s culture, food and wildlife. His goal? To discover the heart of Serbia.

By day he passed through mountains, rural villages, bustling cities and vast plains, breathing in the country’s stunning landscapes and interacting with strangers, from elderly farmers to powerful businessmen. By night he slept in fields or in the homes of welcoming strangers who offered their food, wisdom, hospitality and stories from the countries recent past.

Walk Serbia not only tells the story of Kevin’s journey, but helps to paint a portrait of a very different Serbia to the one portrayed in the media.
