Madame Jovanka Broz funeral

Former Yugoslavia’s first lady Jovanka Broz was laid to rest in the House of Flowers mausoleum next to her husband, former Yugoslav leader Josip Broz Tito. Mourned by a throng who remembered his ex-communist federation as a haven of peace, prosperity and equality more than 20 years after it broke up in bloodshed. Madame Broz, who lived virtually forgotten for many years after war tore apart the socialist federation built by Tito died of heart failure in a Belgrade hospital on October 20, 2013 at the age of 88. I often shoot weddings and more often funerals. For me this funeral looked like a wedding ceremony.
