The photo essay The bridge on the Drina, by Jean Mohr was inspired by the Nobel Prize-winning poet Ivo Andric's book by the same name, "which tells how the bridge, ever since it was built in the 16th century across the fast-flowing river of Serbia, has contributed to the growth and life of the town of Visegrad." Photographer Jean Mohr explored the theme of urbanization: "the growth of towns, suburbs swallowed into city centres, the disappearance of green calm." (World Health, December 1962)
