Bosnian photojournalist, Ziyah Gafić’s project, “Quest for Identity,” contains thousands of photographs of personal belongings and artifacts unearthed from mass graves in the aftermath of the Bosnian War. These items are the remains of their identity, regardless of their simplicity. Gafić’s aim is to create a searchable online database which will not only aid in the ongoing trials of war crimes, but also as a tool for visual identification of the missing 30,000 Bosnians. The accompanying book, “Quest for Identity” (de.Mo Design Limited), will be available in August 2013. PDN began following this project in 2011. Click here for more.
