"Under the same sky" virtual exhibition

May 7, 2020
Turkey and Armenia are countries without diplomatic relations, which has no border crossing and no relations administrative-commercial level. The reason for this is due to genocide and deportation from the beginning of the last century. Do young people from both countries, between the ages of 15 and 35, can dream of their common peaceful future after such the great traumas and what do they think about that? I called the answer to these questions. I asked to youngs of the two countries to write a letter using handwritings to each other. Besides, I shot their portraits and I delivery these photographs together with their letters and now friendships are established between youngs. With all of my efforts, I was tried to be created a peace bridge between two folks. Now, I plan a photography exhibition and print a book which contains the letters and photographs and perform video presentations.
The exhibition consists of 27 photographs and 2 videos.
