A new chapter of my long-term project “Green gold” realized on assignment in Albania, part of an investigative report on drug trafficking in Europe done together with journalist Jonas Breng, has been published today as cover story in the weekly German magazine Stern. I have photographed seizures and investigative operations carried out by members of the Counter-narcotics Group of GDF in Italy. Artan, a journalist threatened by cartels in Albania. Samo, a killer and drug trafficker. I have followed the traces of Klement Balili, also known as the Pablo Escobar of the Balkans, wanted by the DEA and by the Greek police. The Policeman, The Journalist, the Killer and the Godfather are 4 of the chapters now online on Stern with my pictures. https://www.stern.de/panorama/stern-crime/die-spur-der-drogen–iv—der-killer-7836016.html#mg-1_1517761077155
