« I lived and worked in the region of the Balkans, Turkey and the Caucasus for more than a decade. My work, focuses on the junction between chronicle and fiction, exploring ideas around concepts of borders, land, memory, desire, identity and history. I am interested in the telling of history, and in notions around periphery and edge. For me photography is a process of litracy, a journey of understanding. »
