Life on a Tree

april 03 2016 Galerija slika

Panta Petrovic (65), lives in a house on a tree on his farm in the suburbs of the town of Pirot.

Until the 1990s, Perovic worked in France as a mechanical technician with overseas cargo ships but decided to return to Serbia after spending 18 years abroad. Life in Serbia was hard during the 1990s, a time during which the Yugoslav wars started. Some ten years ago Perovic, who had trouble finding his way, decided to leave his family home in Pirot and moved to the suburbs, where he built his tree house at a height of about eight meters. He lives on a small pension from his work years in France. He keeps goats, cats, chicken, and even a wild boar on his farm, which can move freely on his estate. Although residents of Pirot come to visit him from time to time, Perovic suffers from loneliness which he fights by caring for the animals and decorating his farm.
