McCready photographed post-war Sarajevo in April and May 1996. Amidst the spring blossoms, the ruins, and the newly reopened cafés, people walked everywhere, safely, in what felt like a suspended state of being. They had stopped dying, but they hadn’t started living again. Returning 23 years later, McCready captured a transformed city, yet some ghosts of the siege still lingered. How long does it take for the traces of war to disappear?
