Project Quest for identity contains thousands of photographs
of personal belongings or artifacts as euphemistically called by forensics
photographed on forensic table used to assemble bodies from mass graves.
These are items people carried with themselves as they were running away from
Serb Army or when they were took for execution instead of prisoners
exchange as they've been told.
Beside body parts these items are last resort of their identity, regardless
to their simplicity.
Items were recovered and are still being recovered from countless mass
graves across my homeland - Bosnia. Aim is to create searchable on-line data
base which will correspond with existing physical archive of these items,
forensic evidences to be precise, used in ongoing trials for war crimes but
above all as a tool for primary - visual identification of some 30 000
missing Bosnians (basically huge refrigerators with catalogued items) and
I wish I could say enjoy it.
