War Photo Ltd is an excellent photography gallery dedicated to displaying photos depicting war; not just the most recent War in Yugoslavia, but others as well. Its main focus is Yugoslavia and the aftermath, and I found the displays very moving. The gallery contains 2 floors with 3 or 4 rooms per floor full of photographs.
It can be a little tricky to find Antuninska St off of the Stradun, but once you turn down, WPL is right there on your right.
The exhibit that stood out to me most was the one on the recovery and identification of the bodies dumped in a mass grave after the slaughter in Srebrenica, Bosnia. Another set of photos that I remember so clearly is a series depicting individuals dashing across a certain street intersection to avoid sniper fire. the photographer was crouched down in an obscured location and photographed them as they ran across this one open area. Unfortunately I don't remember which Yugoslav city he was in.
My one issue with this gallery is that, despite its proclamations of being nonbiased, after learning more about the war since our trip this summer, it sure seems to me as though WPL had an agenda--Serbia the sole agressor; Bosnia-Herzogovina the innocent beaten-down nation; Croatia stuck in the middle, blameless. It may just have been the exhibits that were up, but that was certainly the impression I got; the conflict was much more complex than the photographs implied, and no country was innocent.
WPL offers numerous books of their photographers' works for sale, many of which are wonderful. I ended up buying one of the founder's books on Mostar; the photos weren't even displayed in the gallery, but I had just been to Mostar and was interested to learn more about the city's war-time struggle.
