About the Book
The photographs in TESTAMENT examine places of conflict, memory and commemoration associated with the 1998-99 Kosovo War between Serbians and Albanians, and the NATO bombing of Serbian forces. The series is part of Hossack’s larger body of work exploring Nazi architecture in Berlin, Stalinist structures in Moscow, a Cold War bunker in Ottawa, contested sites in Jerusalem, the Japanese Canadian experience during WW II, Sir Winston Churchill’s London and the D-Day beaches of Normandy.
