The upcoming, modern photography of photographers from Turkey is hardly known inside and outside their own country. Faced with wars and unrest in the Middle East as well as with the national developments, a generation of independent photographers has developed. They closely observe social developments in their homeland.
Aesthetically and thematically, these young photographers mark a leap in Turkey’s history of photography. One of the outstanding characteristics of their generation is the multifaceted nature of their forms of expression and their ability to develop, in addition to visual and narrative strategies of photojournalism, their own conceptual visual languages.
Photographers: Kemal Aslan, Emine Akbaba, Göksu Baysal, Kürşat Bayhan, Barbaros Kayan, Emin Özmen, Ceren Saner and the collective NARphotos.
