Hi James, I was told you know well the Portland area bike racing scene of the 1970s. In 1977 or so I did a 12-hour TT (on a tandem). The course was in the Wilsonville/Woodburn area, west of I-5 south of Portland. I think the race was put on by George Wilson. I'm hoping to re-learn the course, where it was. Any idea?

HI JAMES...A couple weeks ago I met a guy last name of Zellar while driving back from some cycling in the bay area. He said he was Oregon state road champ a few years in the 70's. Ran across your racing photos and there were a couple of Nick Zellar. I had my '73 Merz road bike with me and he enjoyed seeing it, knew Merz and DiNucci as we all did to one degree or another back then. Just following up with him because we had a great conversation at a rest stop near Dunsmuir. Looking for a list of all the road champs from the 70's and 80's. Love your historic shots!...GREG

Dear James,

I would Like to use some of your photos for exhibition about Sarajevo under the siege. You will be cited as an author. E-mail me at:

Hey James! Are you the same James Mason that was commenting on the Portland Tribune article about Paul Knauls? Working on a documentary about the Blazers and Portland at that time and looking find shots of Paul sitting court side. Please email if you get this ! - Thank you! Josh

James, how long have we been out of touch? Not sure if you know that Zack passed away in 2015 -- on his birthday. As soon as I could, I sold the house in Missoula and relocated -- to Lincoln City, Oregon. Have been here about 4 years. Would love to hear from you. Your website is fabulous! Would love to know how tour life has evolved. Cheers, m'dear!
Peter Kelley 24-Apr-2021 05:29
I wanted to request permission to use some of your pictures for the Berkeley Bike Club web site. We are updating our history page and some of your pics would complement the story.

We would, of course, include attribution.

We are interested in pictures related to Velo Club Berkeley, Berkeley Wheelman, BBC or riders who once rode in the BBC.

Let me know.

Those are fantastic pictures of the Kinks at Reed College. Just amazing images of a great band.
Larry Ganders 19-May-2020 06:21
Thought of you on the anniversary of Mt. St. Helens and our time at the Tri-City Herald. You are a great photographer!
Kevin Sinclair 12-Jan-2020 21:46

Did you attend Reed College? I saw your photos of the Kinks concert at Reed, from 1969. I am looking for more Reed photos, of students in general, in the last 60s and early 70s. Please contact me, thanks!

Hi James,

I'm an archive researcher on an upcoming National Geographic documentary about the May 18th eruption of MSH. Could you please contact me on to discuss licensing some of your photographs from that time?

Many thanks

Kim, I corrected the date to 1981. I attended a festival where I'm sure there were more than 10,000. But I'm sure you're right, it wasn't 55,000. - James
M.R. Hilow 29-Jul-2019 23:05
James, I would like your permission to use one of your photos from the Rajneesh collection, specifically, the "even the dogs are red pic". I have that pic up now on IMDB with the photo gallery for my 1993 documentary film; Rajneeshpuram an Experiment to Provoke God. Thank you, and look forward to your reply. It is for educational use only.

Hi James, Awesome shots! I'm working on an annual report for OTZ in Kotzebue and am interested in purchasing a photo for the cover and perhaps others from your Kobuk 440 collection. (Looking for images that communicate "speed" like dogs pulling and such.) If you're game, please let me know soon so we can work on any permissions needed and all that good stuff. Thanks!

Dear Mr. Mason,

I would like to use some of your photos from 'The war in Central Bosnia' gallery on my blog where I occasionally post about the Bosnian war. Your photographs means a lot because I am from Central Bosnia and was trying to find photographs from the war for a while and it is very hard to find anything, especially quality photography like yours. Could you please send me your email address or contact me?
Your photographs are beautiful and it is very touching for me to go through this gallery. That is why I would like to share it with more people because I know there are others who are interested in this war and it would mean a lot for other Bosnians as well.
Thank you and all the best,

Matea G.
E.B. Kist 16-Jun-2015 13:55

Hi, James:
Talk about a walk down memory lane! Your photos are really awesome. I am doing a project for school at UAF and would like to use some of your Kotzebue pictures if that is okay. I will add a credit for photos used.
Thank you.

Hi James!

I work for the biggest womens magazine in Sweden, called Amelia. We're writing an article about Janine di Giovanni and found a picture at the PBase we would love to use. The "Tuzla aiport"-picture.

We really like it, and hope it's possible to buy it!

Hope to hear from u as soon as possible!

All the best,

Hi, by case found some of your pictures from Turanj in the web, and just wanted to say hello....maybe you remember me, Toni, the guy that was taking care about you fotografers, like you, or mister Kurt Sauter from Switzerland....and many others, like Lee Sinco (LA Times...) Would be really happy to hear from you.....
Guest 15-Oct-2013 13:03
Thank you for sharing those photos that bring back memories of the tragedy and time there in '93 & '94.
It is sad that politicians never learn from the past. It seems no one teach them of 'best practices' and mistakes are long forgotten.
The guest comment below regarding the organizations is somehow right - the politics of those are sometimes not understandable - but made by politicians! Behind the acronyms are people from all continents, of all beliefs, of all levels of society - and they bring hope to many people in despair around the world. I.e. the United Nations is made up by numerous agencies, organizations, funds and missions and is much, much more than the Peace-Keepers - who also sometimes make the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of politicians.........
Please pay some respect - and to all users/guests, also do consider using a sober language and respect the views of other people.
Thank you

Hi James, loved your pictures of the wartorn Yoguslavia. Have you made a photobook that i can purchase??
Guest 10-Jul-2013 12:47
Thanks wery much for those wery touching photos. I cant imagine, that the Bosnian war is almost 20 years gone, and that the war criminals have just yet been found. Shamefull. But the pictures brings back the time, when I was studying, and realising, that the terms "EU", "UN" and "Nato" is nothing but bulshit words... Best regards Brian

Tremendous photojournalism that attests to a high degree of dedication and expertise.
Glad that I recently became aware of your work!
Peter 01-Nov-2012 05:48
Love your pictures of the Brits in Bosnia. I was there with 1PWO and worked for Roy Hunter who I see has added quite a few comments.
They brought back many memories, most of them quite sad, i was quite moved by it Thanks for the memories from nearly 20 years ago.
James Mason17-Aug-2012 04:31
Alain, I was not then and am not now a member of the Rajneesh group. What happened in Oregon was unfortunate, but it was the actions of a small group of individuals with personality and psychological problems that brought about these mistakes. Nearly all of the Rajneesh people I knew from visiting as a journalist were nice people.
Alain 16-Aug-2012 09:18
Hi James,
I am so surprised to see a gallery regarding "Rajneesh in Oregon".
Are you a member of them ?
Are you pride of what they have done in 1984 ?

Hi James-- I'm writing an article for BikePortland about Mount Tabor racing, and I'd love to use this amazing image in the post, if possible: image/128295319

GREAT shots, I was so psyched to find these. I'm hoping to do more about the history of racing in PDX, and it's tough to find images that capture those glory days.

Hi - I'm very keen to use a couple of your BBC pictures from Bosnia for a piece I'm writing for the BBC College of Journalism.

I'd be really grateful if you could drop me an email at stuarthughesbbc at gmail dot com

Scott C 26-Feb-2012 00:20
Just found this site last night. Amazing. In many of your cycling pictures I am certain that I was standing within 20 feet of you when you were shooting. I watched the same races at the same location and angles as the pictures of the 77 nationals, the Nevada City races, the Presidio, and fishermans' wharf. I was in the race with Auker and Broznowski at Horse Heaven. They dropped me of course.
Richard12-Feb-2012 22:20
Hi James,

Your photos of the Bosnian War are amazing. I was there and it brings it all back. I was in Gornji and Vitez and Tusla in the summer of '93 as a Captain in the British Army. I am now also a photographer ... but I shoot safe and beautiful things mainly. Too scared or too comfortable right now to be a war photographer. You should do a book. If I had work as brilliant and important as this I would get it in print (maybe you already did).

Anyway, thanks for sharing these stunning images ...

Hello James!
Im really intresting in Bosnia and Balkans and Im writing a lot about it. Im from Poland and I want to show people, who know a lot about second world war, that on balkans not so long ago, happened similar things. Im a young journalist also. Thats why Im talking with people, who lived there during war and people who could say something about that. And now my question: could you say me something about that? Your memories, opinions and things like that?
Thank you very much for answer, I will be really happy if you could write me back, its my email:

I'm a Norwegian travler, and i've been to Bosnia sevral times since 2007. I've met up with a guy, who worked for the British forces as an interpreter. I would like to try to find some pictures of him, and therfore i ask you for help.

Please contact me.

hi James, im a big Inga fan/friend and host a radio show called "biketalk on KVMR" up in Nevada City CA. needless to say i love all of your pictures of NC especially the ones of Inga.

id like to share your pictures along with proper photo credits to you when and wherever they are shared on my biketalk page (on facebook) as well as a few other places, and just wanted to ask your permission before i did.

hoping this will be okay with you?

as well i checked out a whole bunch of your photos from Bosnia and other places and they are amazing! you've been a lot of places and seen a lot.... i wish more folks would check them out so they could get a grasp on what is really going on in the world.

Hi James, I was just looking at your photos of journalists in the former Yugoslavia - really fantastic. Just wondering - do you have any more photos of Martin Bell? I work for the publisher Icon books, and we will at some point be reissuing one of his classic works of journalism on the Bosnian war, so would be really interested to know if you had any other photos. Many thanks!
Dan Fitzgerald 02-Nov-2011 01:37
Do you have any pictures of Tad Teays at Marina Cyclery circa 1991-1992? All the neighborhood bike shops have gone "effete & effeminate" (a la City Cycle) since you sold your business.

I liked your photos of the '77 Nationals as I was among the spectators. I even got to chat with Bob Cook and Greg LeMond at the post-race dinner.
Lisa K Perry, Abundant Life Photography, Inc.09-Oct-2011 17:07
As one who has an extreme passion for the people of the former Yugoslavia, I can't even look at all these pictures without tears. They are amazing!!! I do hope you go back again. I can't wait for my first trip there!!! Thank you for capturing the essence of these amazing people!!!

Your gallery is an outstanding slice of the recent history of the western world, looking for its own future in the 40 past years and witnessing the crumbling down of all the ideologies : from the late 70's eccentric spiritual experiences to the 90's ethnic wars.
... and I'm still wondering what is left now?
Thanks for reporting it and sharing it with us.
Tony McMillan 15-Jun-2010 15:10
On your pics of early cycling, the Tour of Nevada City 66 race there is a picture where you want to identify the riders. The San Diego Rider with California on his shorts is Ed Renger, and I am pretty sure the other rider is Ian Mahon. Renger for sure. He is still in San Diego and active. I rode with him until I stopped riding in '67 and found him to be a really nice, friendly and classy guy.
Krist 02-Jun-2010 01:38
James - Your name came up the other day at the photo shop on Scott St. just off Chestnut (SF) - evidently the proprietor knows you from when you had a bike shop nearby.

I assume you photo site is public. Did you ever get to know a guy named Bob Lawerence when you took the photos of the Bajwhan guy's place? Can I put a link to your photo site in my story..i dont need an individual photo...

Hello James,

I was in the British army and in 1993 was sent to Vitez as part of the UNPROFO. My colonel Alastair Duncan.Bosnia holds a very special place in my heart. Your pictures are very good and take me back with such clarity. I hope to return one day and visit the places there i went on patrol. I remember evacuating croates civilians from guch gora church, the convoy of joy like it was yesterday. I reconize a lot of people on your pictures not just the uk military ones but also the locals and even a couple of the local soldiers.
am girl 11-Feb-2010 07:30
I'm dating a Bosnian native (Jablanica). He and his family moved to the US in 1993. I'm trying to take an act of interest in his heritage, due to the fact that I don't know much about Bosnians. I'm currently learning to speak Bosnian with a 'knock off' Rosette Stone learner and I'm enjoying it. I tried cooking/baking several Bosnian dishes for him like zeljanica. We plan on visiting Europe this year and some of his family. We have talked about marriage and I told him that I'd like to get married in Bosnia. Could you give me any pointers as to how, as an American woman, win his family over? I'm very interested in learning more, but don't know any other Bosnians.
Sandy Kowalski 18-Jan-2010 05:12
Okay, it's not only the Kotzebue pictures I go to. These are great, and I look forward to seeing them when I can sit down and enjoy them! The pictures from the war, your father's pictures, the sports shots, the Portland pictures - they are an experience.
Best regards.

Kako si, James-
As a former member of Pedali Alpini (early 60's), I greatly enjoyed your racing gallery and I am impressed by your photographic skills. You may enjoy my vintage racing site: (I will soon be adding a 1980's Nevada City page.) I was also taken by your shots of Croatia. My father was born on Brac Otok. But what a difficult time to be there!
Best wishes,

Hi, I was tickled to see that you had a photo of the 1966 Nevada City Jr. Crit. That was my first race! (I was dropped). But, hey, I finished 10th the next year... 8) Any chance you have any more pix of 1966, I would love to buy some even if there isn't anything of me...

Your compsitions are power in the most pure form. You took myself and other 1966 graduates of Los Altos High School on a Great Trip. (I felt like my very essence was right there). A few of us were wondering if you attended school at Los Altos, and when. I am an oil painter, and have been since the early days of Los Altos. I appreciate conceptual brilliance such as yours, and I need to tell you so. PSHabeger

Greetings from Bosnia! I like your photos very much. Me and my colleague recently made a video about the church-hospital in Nova Bila in the Lasva Valley during the conflict. The video (it lasts around 15 minutes, so it had to be broken up in two parts) can be found here: -- NOTE: It has English
subtitles/translation! Just enable CAPTIONS (CC) in the lower-right corner of the video.

We really tried to make a short documentary about good people, and not to talk about how someone else is bad.

I just would like to thank you very much for the insight into this beautiful country. I have been looking for pictures of Mostar (before the war)for sometime. My wife was born there, and came to America in 1994. This helps me picture what she had to go through. Again Thank You!
I would love to see some more pictures of the town itself if you have some.

Hi James,

I saw your photo of Mark and me, really nice. It's been awhile. I have been married to Heidi Hopkins and was living in Big Sur until our home burned up. I have returned to taking photos in my retirement. After losing everything in the fire life is disrupted, but still spend time in Eastern Sierra walking and cycling. It would be great to hook up with you again.

Guest 05-Oct-2008 12:40
Dear James

Thank you for the photos of the Bosnia War, I am at college and doing an investigation into the Bosnian War and your photos and written summary has helped me very much.

All the best in your future, may it be enlightening.

Akiko 02-Oct-2008 15:02
Dear Mr. Mason,

I am contacting you because I am looking for some photos of Croatia which were photographed during the civil war beteween 1991 and 1995 for a TV documentary. I would like to know if we could use your photos for the documentary because they are very well photographed quality pictures. I would be very grateful if you could kindly contact me for the details. Best regards, Akiko ( )
Lou Jaffe 01-Oct-2008 19:35

Jaffe here. Norm Thompson in the '70s. I tried Googling you a few years back, but came up empty. We just returned from Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia. While there I thought of you and your "stuff" in some attic in Dubrovnik. We were very taken with the trip and learned a lot about this history. Then I stumbled across your photos. Wow. We're still in Portland; Kriger is in Casablanca; where are you?? Lou
Frank Smith 25-Aug-2008 17:21
Hi James,

Don't think we've met, but odd that we didn't, somewhere. Poona, SF, ANC, North Slope (never been to OTZ or PHO though), etc., etc.

I ran marathons for years and knew some triathletes. My roomie was 2nd woman in the 2nd Ironman in Hawai'i.

Halfway expected to see a shot of an old friend, the late Walt Stack, in your DSE shots.

Hello Mr. Mason!

I just saw your beautiful photographs and since I really like photography I would like to thank you for sharing them with all of us.

I am from Karlovac in Croatia and I could maybe get you more information about the people in one of your photographs:

James Mason | all galleries >> Hrvatska - Croatia > Recognize Croatia!

Your comment:

I'd like to know what these men are doing now, if anybody in the Karlovac area can tell me.

I might be able to get some info about those brave men if you would like me to investigate it.

Please send me mail to my address if you would like to talk more about it.

Thank you in advance!

Great Pictures. I had heard that at the start of the Munich Olympics road race, some spectator was standing next to John Howard and the spectator commited suicide with a handgun. Apparently this really upset John. Later on he crashed and was unable to finish because he lost one of his shoes.
uskopljanka 27-Nov-2007 15:31

There was just one Aussie I know. He wasn't racing. He was taking pics. He is a Cro. Wrong Aussies.
James Mason11-May-2006 07:30
I remember the two Aussies well. Were they Croats? I never got their names. They were real dog lovers, but their tales of racing in Oz were bizarre. I think the beer was as important as the dogs. In retrospect I wish I'd done a story about them for the paper.
Guest 10-May-2006 18:22

Thank you so much for sharing the Kotzebue Area pictures. My father was Norman Flood, he was from Kotzebue.

Our family lives in southeast Alaska, Juneau.

We knew that our father loved his homeland so much and was homesick many times, we can see why.

Gunalcheesh (tlingit - thank you)
Greg 20-Jan-2006 02:57
Well, I wouldn't want to step in your international bull pucky sling with James, Mr. "Guest", but for whatever its worth it's pretty much a toss-up as to distance from Kotz to New Orleans or Serbville, albeit, 6-7000 kilometers either way. Northwest to Bosnia or Southeast to red beans 'n rice mmmmmm, North Korea there's a place that's close, crazy like Serbia, and has nukes to boot....'course I haven't been priveleged to visit either and I don't claim to understand what distance has to do with morality, it must be a Balkan thing. Hi James!
Guest 19-Jan-2006 23:38
Good one Greg...

There was a spelling mistake there but I think the guy was trying to be sarcastic...To make it easier for you to understand, Louisiana is much closer to Alaska than the Balkans...I am sure next time a correct mileage will be entered not to offend your supreme knowledge of geography...

And for the know-it-all from Alaska...

Ante Gotovina sends his greetings to you from Hague and wants you to read some info from a bosnian link below...
James Mason 17-Dec-2005 09:28
A "few hudred kilometers" puts me out in the middle of nowhere. I'm 650 air miles from the closest McDonalds.
Greg 17-Dec-2005 05:35
You know bucko you do have talent...I never bothered to mention that I do enjoy seeing your work...on occasion.
I enjoyed the "few hudred kilometres" remark from your admiring Serb. And they say Americans have no sense of geography!
James Mason14-Dec-2005 01:08
I deleted the previous messages of this character below because I got real tired of Serb whackos during the war. This gentleman is typical of the Serbs who sat the war out in the ausland and have some funny ideas about what went down. Read his post and make your own mind this a well-adjusted individual? Can you picture him in some basement apartment on the outskirts of Toronto, stabbing my pictures with a kitchen knife while the TV is locked onto the cartoon channel? The trash is overflowing with cheap beer empties and TV dinner trays. There's a whole country full of guys just like him. It's called Serbia.
Guest 11-Dec-2005 23:34
Thanks for deleting my comments...What was wrong with them...Didn't like a few facts I stated...

Please don't compare Germans with Serbs...We are the ones that fought against them and we are the ones who ended up in their concentration camps in the then fascist state of NDH...

Again get a history book and read a little...

Gee you must have been so busy in your newspaper reporting in Alaska...Major stories on Alaskan malamute riots...What a pathetic excuse...You could not find time to travel a few hudred kilometres south to Louisiana but were more than happy to go to war torn central Europe...Give me a break...You are just another typical weekend commando...Which newspaper did you represent in the war torn regions...Don't think anybody would be paying your airfare to Europe so you can take low grade photos overseas...Thats why as you said you "have a job ON a newspaper here in Alaska"...Make sure you stay "ON a newspaper" there in Alaska and don't come back...

Over and out from me fool...I am not wasting my time with a Grizzly Adams stuck in some igloo who does not even respect his own country's basic law of 'Freedom of Speech'...Apologies for taking up 'Your' space...Didn't know 'You' own the whole of PBase...

Since you speak languages from the former YU so well learn how to spell you loser...Your friends were called Ustase not Ustashi...Where did you get that from, CNN...Next time you come around you'll meet some new friends...It would not take more than my grandma to teach a hate spreading fascist like you a lesson...

Guest 11-Dec-2005 03:34
Well first of all Chedo, Tesla had to emmigrate to America to become a success....and I am quite aware of his accomplishments. Your grandmother is a liar. There were no American planes shooting at her. Poor Chedo started a war down there in the Krajina under the assumption that the JNA would stand by him. Too bad Milosevich stabbed you guys in the back. The Ustashi gave you a little of your own medicine, didn't they? In fact, I wish those had been American planes shooting at your grandma! Hajde Bakico! Bjezi! Bam! bam! You don't get it. Your picture of the war is not accurate. Mine is. I'm not teaching hatred of Serbs, I'm telling what happened. You sound like a German complaining that the Jews' holocaust tales are just anti-German propaganda.

I didn't go to Louisiana, or go take pictures of black folks been whacked around by the LAPD because I have a job on a newspaper here in Alaska. Now go take up somebody else's space Chedo. Where'd you spend the war? Canada?
James Mason 08-Dec-2005 02:36
Hey get lost. I was there and know what I saw. I spent time on the Serbian side and for the most part, was not allowed to shoot pictures. I do have stuff from Vukovar but have not had a chance to scan it. The Serb politicians certainly are guilty, but the average Serbian citizen went along for the ride. I hung out in Knin for two weeks early in the war, before it had started in Bosnia, and I met some really nice people. But they were nuts. Their view of the situation was crazy. To answer your post, the borders of the former Yugoslavia are a lot older than Tito. Now why the fuck should the Serbs get part of the Adriatic coast? It is not part of Serbia. Go to Kotor Bay. That is Croatia, yet it belongs to the Crnogorci. Croatia and Bosnia were not favored by the US government in the war until the end. James Baker essentially gave Slobo the go ahead by saying "we don't have a dog in that fight." You are yet another Serbian idiot who can't face up to the reality of the crimes committed by the Serbs. When the US leaves you'll start the war up again and I hope this time you get pushed into Siberia.
Plavusha 14-Nov-2005 23:48
Love the pictures.
All of them.
You were one of the few journos covering the wars in Croatia and BiH who actually knew what he was were talking about. You didn't show up claiming you knew everything like so many other pricks who covered the wars.
Keep in touch.
See you in Croatia and BiH soon.
Big hug,
Kimberley 04-Nov-2005 05:43
Dear James,
You've skillfully hidden this website from me for so many years! If you hadn't just posted that photo of me, you probably never would have told me of its existence. It is so strange to see all your work from Bosnia, etc. again-- it really brings back the bizarre feeling of that time to me. Your stories and pictures were a real window on that world for us. I see by the recent comments here that you are still attracting crazies from that part of the world. Their comments make it plain that trouble is not yet over for the Balkans. Well, I'm glad you got out of there with your hide intact, and your pictures of Kotzebue are every bit as good-- and somewhat safer to shoot! That's an awesome shot of people walking out of the church. There's a lot of dynamic visual tension in that peaceful scene. Well, keep the bottom side of the Snow Machine down and show us a shot of Nikki in the wolf costume?
Andrew Lai 02-Nov-2005 21:11
Dear James Mason,
I'm the student you gave the furniture to when you were here in California. Just wanted to say thanks once more for the furniture! I also found a film roll in the dresser that you may want. I'll be more than willing to send it to you. Feel free to email me.
Lee Stewardson 18-Oct-2005 13:18
haha no ot the "dead photographer" beaverton, home of Nike!!

Frimley is in the UK, an old school friend of mine, also called james mason is also a photographer and I wondered of you were him.
James Mason 17-Oct-2005 23:04
Never heard of Frimley. I'm originally from Beaverton, Oregon, USA, but I've lived many places. Not in Frimley, however. Are you the crazy "dead photographer" guy?
Lee Stewardson 17-Oct-2005 20:08
Are you the James Mason of Frimley by any chance?
James Mason 07-Oct-2005 17:53
Why did I delete it? Because it is crazy and weird. Why don't you go figure out who actually wrote Shakespeare and then get back to us.
Mr. Dunn 07-Oct-2005 13:38
hello James,

see you deleted my comment regarding dead photographers and stolen exposed film stock.

James Mason 05-Oct-2005 21:38
I've always valued free psychiatric advice very highly. So I thank you for the analysis. Could you send me some drugs maybe? Since you are an expert on the human psyche, why don't you explain to us what makes the Serbs so fucking criminal? And why do you, a man who apparently has a high school diploma, defend the criminals and psychos who dragged the name of the Serbs thru the manure?
Milovan Mugoša 05-Oct-2005 10:46
Wow, your lunacy is much worse than I originally thought.

What these photos, along with the odious garbage you write around here, document above all - is your own personal descent into dementia.

Although I very much doubt you were ever properly "wired up" to begin with, at the moment you're a case that should be institutionalized.

With the amount of hate that's running through your veins, you ended up destroying no one but yourself and your own emotional well being.

Hopefully your condition deosn't deteriorate any further, but, just in case, seek some professional help, so you don't become a danger to your immediate environment.
James Mason 05-Oct-2005 08:59
Well Milovan, out here in the real world we are allowed express our views. What I'm sharing is what I experienced, not some Serbian fairy tale that was handed down to me by an alcoholic uncle who drove buses in Nis for twenty years before emigrating to Toronto to become a janitor at Wal-Mart. If you want to talk about ethnic hatred and mental instability, then let's talk about the Serbs. I didn't start out this way. I got tweaked by experiencing what was called a war but actually wasn't. I haven't thought up a name for it yet. The Serbs are in serious denial. You refuse to admit that you did what you did. These pictures are here so "foreigners" will know a small part of what happened, and who the criminals were behind it. Now get lost.
Milovan Mugosa 05-Oct-2005 07:26
The comments that accompany most of your Sarajevo photos are at best scandalous and at worst contain statements that are brimming with ethnic hatred.

And as far as your shtick in this guestbook goes - it reveals an extremely hateful and unstable individual to a point of making me question whether the space between your ears holds much sanity.

I don't know what your personal situation is like or what kind of horrible visuals you might've been exposed to in Sarajevo, but this is a photo-sharing site. Not a political forum, hate hub or a therapy session.

The fact that your photos hold historical value should not provide you with the soapbox for your hateful views.
James Mason 03-Oct-2005 03:50
So your father was an Ustashi?
Captain Obvious 03-Oct-2005 02:54
I was a Serbian child during the Ustashi reign. I saw it all. I was raped several times when I was just a 12 year old girl.
James Mason28-Sep-2005 07:04
To Timothy Dunn:

I don't care what you think of my photos.

James Mason
James Mason28-Sep-2005 06:58

My father fought the Nazis in WW2. Did yours? I don't support brutal violence against anybody and that includes Serbs. There is nothing here that supports the Ustashi in WW2. Now get lost you creep.
CaptainReality 20-Sep-2005 16:39
Then please, Sir, explain yourself. Were the Ustashi right, or wrong, in their brutal violence against Serbs?
Timothy Dunn 20-Sep-2005 15:32
James Mason,

I struggle to recall the last time I've encountered someone as self infatuated, as far up his own shit hole and as totally misinformed as you. We have a word in England that I think best describes you: Wanker.

You are a Facist Wanker James Mason and an amateur photographer (at best).

P.S. Take up knitting, I think you need to calm down.
James Mason17-Sep-2005 06:03
You saw my comments about the Ustashi on a forum? Where would that be? I've said that about Croats. Are you suggesting that all Croats are Ustashi? Get lost. You're another Serbian liar and you weren't in WW2 and didn't see any of that shit. You're some 13-year-old chetnik wannabee in Chicago or Toronto.
CaptainReality 10-Sep-2005 06:20
I saw your comments on a forum about how the Ustashi were not really against Serbs but just wanted "their own, pure homeland." Shame on you. I was there in WWII. I saw, with my own eyes, what the Ustashi did to Serbs. Hammers, saws, clubs, guns, you name it. I saw it. Shame on you and all who defend anything the Ustashi say or believe.

Hi James, I lived in Kotzebue for about 1 1/2 years while my dad taught at Kotzebue High School way back in '78. It was the most memorable experience for me - I remember the Dairy Queen and my dad dragging me to my violin lesson in blinding blizzards. thanks for sharing your pictures!

I saw many terrible/powerfull pictures in your galleries.
I am very amazed, especially for the ones of ex-yugoslavia.
MANY BRAVO for your work. I am curious to know : who are you ? :)

I love your work and I love your posts at dpreview. I became a fan of yours in 5 minutes! Photography is more than a hobby for some of you. Sincerely,
