Uğur Gallen was born and lives in Turkey, and for years has seen neighbouring Syria plunged into a civil war that has affected the lives of millions of people. He is bothered by the inequality and contrasts in the way of life of citizens living close to each other, but practically living in different worlds.
It’s hard to be immune to the power of a good photo. This is the media used by Gallen to evidence the striking differences between contrasting worlds of developed countries and those that are plagued by conflicts. Through his project, he tries to capture the enormous and at the same time dramatic contrast of these “two completely contrasting worlds.”
