Ziyah Gafic, renowned Bosnian photojournalist, has dedicated himself to cataloging the thousands of items left behind: a well-worn watch, a rosary, wallet photos, and so on—in hopes that someone might recognize the remnants of their loved ones, and as a last, permanent reminder of those lost in the genocide. This project transcends the long, painful process of identification into an artistic statement.
