Turkey, November 2011
Last Summer George was commissioned by Zaman newspaper in Turkey to take part in a book project to celebrate their 25th year. They invited 25 photographers to spend a week photographing Turkey.
The whole project can be seen on the Zaman “Time in Turkey” page.
For this work, George chose the idea of following up on “Fault Lines” by making a road trip on the New Roads. The title in Turkish, “Yeni Yol,” has multiple meanings: New Way, New Aim or New Ideology.
From his experience of Turkey, George used the New Roads as a metaphor of the change that is taking place and question what that vision is.
