Ten War Photographs That Changed The World | Number 5
A woman sprints to avoid Serb sniper fire during the siege of Sarajevo, April 1993.
“A sniper was always shooting at that avenue, killing people, injuring them, and I thought how to cross. I stayed in between the houses. One quick glance to my watch. When the first bullet was shot I counted the seconds to the next bullet. Some 15 to 20 seconds. And so I was ready when the shot was fired to run across the avenue and I had to do it in 15 seconds. At such times the fear a person feels is incredible.”
