Fault Lines Turkey



For our final visit to Turkey, another mention for George Georgiou's excellent Fault Lines, now available as a book. I like the way that Georgiou tries to unravel the idealised Turk to reveal the ethnic mix that makes up the supposedly monocultural, secular (but 99% Islam, which is being a bit uninclusive to the atheists of Turkey) nation which was once something quite different. How it moved from that different place to what it is today, Georgiou answers through the places he photographs and the strategies he chooses along the way.

Thanks for the Memories, Gazebook Sicily!

Gazebook was fantastic! If you don't know it, it's a festival that takes place in the small town of Punta Secca on the south ...
