gospa city

/ Clément Mahoudeau


Medjugorje is a small town of Herzegovina region of western Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Six young people have reported being witnesses of apparitions of the Virgin Mary (Gospa in Croatian) since 1981.
This phenomenon raises a growing passion over the years.

Despite this phenomenon not being officially recognized by the Catholic Church, Medjugorje attracts thousands of people every year. Around 7.000 people attend to the apparitions during this report, produced at the New Year period in 2014.

My approach has been to be embedded in a 9 people group to document their experiences during their stay in Medjugorje. I wanted to seize the opportunity of being inside a group to illustrate manifestation of faith in this special place. During this report visionaries from Medjugorje experienced three "apparitions".
