‘Transanatolia’ is a journey to the border regions of Anatolia. Photographer Mathias Depardon spent five years traversing this ancient crossroads between East and West, stretching as far as the rim of the Caucasus. In this series of images he explores the notions of periphery and border, from the recently settled western suburbs of Istanbul to Turkish Kurdistan, where a veritable water war is raging and civil revolution seems imminent. Depardon’s portraits and landscapes from these remote regions offer an insightful and powerful look at a nation torn between modernisation and Ottoman nostalgia, helping us to understand the changes sweeping through this part of the world.
