The photos in Ziyah Gafic’s Quest for Identity don’t really fit into the rest of his body of work. The images, quiet and clinical photos of objects left behind by those killed in summary executions in the Bosnian War, are a sharp contrast from the intimate and human moments that fill the stories from the rest of his 20-plus years as a documentary photographer. But looking a little more deeply at the project, it’s clear that they share a through-line common to all of his work across the globe.
