Evidence: The Case Against Milosevic
Photographs by Gary Knight, VII Photo Agency

September 9 – October 31, 2004
Koppelman Gallery


Photographed in Albania, Macedonia, and Kosovo during the conflict between the NATO-backed KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army) and the Yugoslav armed forces during the spring and early summer of 1999, photojournalist Gary Knight documents evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity. "I hope to make [the notion of war crimes] less abstract by making it more human, " says Knight. "I approached the story [of the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia's 'Indictment of Milosevic et al'] as a curator of crime, rather than as a journalist, photographing mass graves and scenes of crime interpreting the charges of murder, persecution, and deportation in a visual context."

Exhibition honoring the 20th Anniversary of EPIIC (Education for Public Inquiry and International Citizenship), a core program for the Institute for Global Leadership , Tufts University, and EXPOSURE, the Institute's Program on Photojournalism, Documentary Studies, and Human Rights.
