Album title was inspired by photography of Sven Sorić. He made series of photos of his hometown Sisak that used to be industrial giant in former Yugoslavia. In the past decade there has been general downfall of Croatian economy and Sisak turned into city of unemployed that had to look for work in other cities or countries. In 2013 Croatia has became part of European Union so portion of the unemployed population saw the opportunity to go and work abroad but most of the countries in EU banned working permits for Croatian immigrants. To this day, sad industrial situation in Croatia has not been showing any signs of progress and even takes a turn for worst. Sven has successfully captured the demise of once huge industry complex that now lays in ruins. To check up his portfolio go to homeisnoplace.tumblr.com/archive .
