ORPHANAGE

 

“Children’s own Chaos”, Tunceli, East Turkey (2007).

 

“35mm camera B&W film.  Project published at the Iz Magazine / Turkey.

 

The kids in Tunceli have lived at the orphanage all their lives; when compared with other kids their conditions are quite unfavourable. They hail life with much depravity, therefore making this a traumatic situation for them.

 

The area is populated mainly by the Kurds where educational levels are very low compared to the rest of the country. This project covers a children’s refuge camp suffering most from the civil war raging in the area for the past thirty years.

 

The first thing that strikes you is the chaos. The kids are living in a bedlam with their own blight. Consequently, this situation encompasses every aspect of their lives, physical, mental and emotional.
