Photographer's Note

Since last 29th May I was on a four days trip in differet cities of South-East Turkey.
Historycally also known as Mesopotamia whre the rivers Tigris and Eupohrates meets each other.
Unfortunately this part of my country still suffers under majör economical and ethnic problems.
From today onwards I shall post many different "human faces" from this region which also symbolises their faiths. This cute girl of Kurdish origin has told me her story. But when she noticed my camera, she tried o mask her face with her henna painted hands.

Bugünden itibaren sizlere yaptığım on dört günlük Gap turun'dan resimler sunacağım.
Dicle ve Fırat'ın suladığı bu topaklar, hala ciddi sorunları olan, problemli yerler.
İnsanlar mutlu mu değil mi anlamak güç.
Midyatlı bu küçük kürt kızı bana hikayesini anlattı sonrada resmini çekeceğimi hissedince de kınalı elleri ile yüzünü saklamaya çalıştı.
