Damir Sagolj is one of my favorite Bosniak photographers. He always manages to tell a story with every photo and, as a fellow Bosnian Muslim, I truly appreciate his progressive subject matter.

Here are some of my favorite photos from Damir.

Laleh Seddigh is reflected in a mirror of her racing car before the start of the Arjan rally outside Tehran June 10, 2005. Laleh, the winner of many races in the Islamic republic, became not only the first woman in Iran to race cars against the opposite sex, but also the first woman since the Islamic Revolution to compete against men in any sport.

An Iraqi election worker with his finger stained with ink, indicating he has already voted, waits for voters at a polling station in the town of Al Amarah in British-patrolled southern Iraq December 15, 2005. As a steady stream of Iraqi voters walked to polling sites nationwide on Thursday to elect their first full-term parliament since Saddam Hussein's overthrow, British troops in Maysan province stay in their bases allowing Iraqi security forces to secure the polls.

Vlado Sarzinski, a Bosnian Serb who fought with the Bosnian Army as a sniper, looks out from his war time position in Sarajevo's suburb of Nedzarici November 18, 2005.

Shoes of Bosnian Muslim refugees are placed outside their temporary home in the village of Hrenovica, Bosnia and Herzegovina November 20, 2005. Hundreds of thousands of Bosnian refugees and internally displaced persons still wait for return to their pre-war homes as the Balkan country of 4 million people, known formally as Bosnia and Herzegovina, marks this month the 10th anniversary of the U.S.-brokered Dayton agreement, ending the 1992-1995 war that killed up to 200,000.

A girl sings under the Lebanese's opposition flag during a rally in Beirut March 14, 2005. Hundreds of thousands of anti-Syrian protesters flooded central Beirut on Monday in what witnesses said was Lebanon's biggest demonstration since former prime minister Rafik al-Hariri's killing exactly a month ago.

People stand behind some 600 coffins with the remains of victims of the Srebrenica massacre, before a funeral in Potocari in this July 11, 2005 file photo. More than 19,000 Bosnian Serbs participated in the massacre at Srebrenica, Europe's worst atrocity since World War Two, a Bosnian government panel said on October 4, 2005. Policemen, army officials and civilians worked to enable the killings through tasks that included logistics, transport and communications as well as military operations, according to a report by the inter-ethnic panel.

Palestinian school girls run away from clashes in central Khan Younis, southern Gaza Strip, September 5, 2005. Palestinian security forces throw stones, fired tear gas and live bullets in the air as they clashed with hundreds of angry protesters on the streets of the southern Gaza town after a protest by unemployed Palestinians turned violent.

Jewish settlers shout at Israeli policemen from a hole in the roof of their home before being evacuated from the Gadid settlement in the Gush Katif bloc of Jewish settlements, southern Gaza Strip, August 19, 2005. Israeli troops stormed one of the last pockets of resistance to withdrawal from Gaza on Friday, dragging settlers and their supporters screaming and sobbing from a settlement synagogue.

An Bosnian forensic expert exhumes human remains from a mass grave in the village of Kevljani in the Serb part of Bosnia September 23, 2004. Almost nine years after the war ended in Bosnia, experts dicsovered another mass grave with remains of more than 200 people killed at the beginning of the country's conflict.

China's Lishi Lao dives during the semi finals of the women's 10 meter platform diving competition at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens August 21, 2004. Lishi Lao qualified for finals with the second best score in semifinals.

A man jumps off the newly rebuilt arch of "Stari Most" (The Old Bridge) during the traditional diving competition in the southern Bosnian town of Mostar. Diving competitions have been traditionally held here every year since the bridge was built 438 years ago. The 16th-century bridge was destroyed during the war in Bosnia between 1992-1995, then rebuilt after the war and joyfully unveiled earlier this month.

A Catholic woman confesses, June 25, 2004, near the site where the Virgin Mary reportedly appeared in Medjugorje, 120 km south of Sarajevo. Millions of pilgrims from all over the world visited the small Bosnian town where, exactly 23 years ago, six Bosnian youngsters claimed that Holy Mary appeared to them in Medjugorje.

Iranian girls take a break from skiing at the top of a hill at Shemshak ski resort about 35 miles (57 km) from Tehran. Shemshak and its sister resort Dizin are favourite getaways for well-to-do young Tehrani's during the winter and spring months.

Bosnia's Elvir Bolic celebrates scoring against Denmark during their Euro 2004 Group Two qualifying match at the Olympc stadium in Sarajevo.

A doctor with the United States Marine Corps cradles an Iraqi girl after she was separated from her family during a firefight between American and Iraqi troops.

I think he's amazing.

I've got to say that before I saw this thread I hadn't heard of this photographer, but they are really good. Here is a number of photographs from this person.
