Ziyah Gafic (@ziyahgafic) has his #EyesOn on a buried past, beneath a landscape once known as Yugoslavia. “I was a teenager during war time,” says the Sarajevo-based photographer, whose world was shattered when his nation was engulfed by ethnic conflict, some 20 years ago. “I was raised and shaped by war.” Now a professional photojournalist, Ziyah’s work has taken him around the world from Saudi Arabia to Zimbabwe. He uses images of his homeland to seek closure with its troubled history: “Nature overtakes us and covers our misdeeds.”
