Graphic Expression

BY RIBA HAROON
@ VOL 6 ON MAR 07, 2015

We are Riba and Simran, an eccentric pair of design junkies. We're graphic designers, artists, bad karaoke singers, serial shopaholics and best friends. We're hooked on all things Adobe. Concocting unique, special designs to match your needs gives us a happy high! We love being art nerds. We love tackling challenges. We love seeing the "this is it" expression.

Other Evidence: Blindfold

BY TITUS KNEGTEL
@ VOL 15 ON OCT 06, 2015

In July 1995, a genocidal massacre took place in the area around Srebrenica. In the years following, and to this day, most media attention in the Netherlands has been focused on the soldiers of Dutchbat that failed to protect the 'Safe Area'. Stories of thousands of Bosnian victims are mostly ignored or forgotten. 

Titus Knegtel made a book in remembrance of all the victims that were killed twenty years ago. This book focuses primarily on the mass graves that they were found in, with 'Lazete 2' in particular.

In 'Other Evidence: Blindfold' Titus tries to take on the role of the forensic anthropologist. Presenting the findings without forcing a certain emotion on the reader.
