For this week’s issue of TIME, photographer Yuri Kozyrev and TIME Middle East Bureau Chief Aryn Baker traveled to Syria to document locals returning to the city of Homs, which lies in ruins.

Amid scenes of devastation, Kozyrev photographed one-time residents salvaging belongings and searching for signs of their former lives.
