  These images are the result of a month spent exploring the borders areas of Eastern Anatolia in Turkey. This rural region is saturated with the ghosts of ancient civilisations that speak of older histories, conflict, and occupations. Nowadays its borders with Iran, Iraq and Syrian evoke violence, wars and exiles. Nevertheless, in these distant little towns where peace is fragile and existence uncertain, life goes on with its daily tasks and emotions. This is what these pictures are about.
