in BACHELOR PHOTOGRAPHY

by Solène Gün


“Turunç” offers an immersion in the daily life of Turkish immigrant boys in Europe, who live in places like the suburbs of Paris and Berlin. From my viewpoint, these places represent areas devoid of prospects, where these young people can only build a very particular world for themselves, torn between the desire to show they exist and a wish to hide away. It is from this identity conflict that I created my photographic work while being close to the people I was studying, which sometimes prevented me from seeing details or from observing them well.
