‘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.

Born in 1980 in Nice, Mathias Depardon grew up between France, Belgium, and the United States. A graduate in journalism and communication from the Institut Supérieur de Formation Sociale et de Communication (ISFSC) in Brussels, he briefly worked for the Belgian daily newspaper Le Soir before devoting himself to reporting and documentary photography. In 2017, following five years spent in Turkey, he was arrested in Hasankeyf in the southeast of the country while covering water supply issues in Mesopotamia for National Geographic. He was released in June 2017, and expelled from the country. His photographs have been showcased by various organizations such as the Cervantes Institute, the French Institute, the French National Library, and more recently at the Paris Museum of National Archives’s TransAnatolia exhibition.
