Image Description: From Georgiou's series: "Fault Lines/Turkey/East/West". The series explores ethnic, political, and cultural tensions in the country of Turkey, where the artist lived for almost half a decade. Georgiou visualizes these tensions with a focus on architecture and infrastructure; a tangible symbol of the friction between what is local versus what is global. These mass projects illustrate the surge of modernity as populations shift from rural to urban lifestyles and traditional ways of life become altered. A print of this photograph was included in the 2011 New Photography Exhibition at the MoMA.

I print of this photograph by British photographer George Georgiou was included in the 2011 New Photography exhibition at MoMA, New York. Photographs from his series Fault Lines "address and question the concept of East and West and the process of modernization, urbanization, and national identity that is happening in Turkey against a rising tide of nationalism and religion."


Photographer's Bio: British photographer George Georgiou has photographed extensively in Eastern Europe and Turkey, spending most of the past five years in Istanbul. His series Fault Lines, made on his travels through Turkey, examines the country's present-day struggle to maintain its traditions and natural landscape in the face of change and development. His pictures focus on everyday life but seek, he says, to "address and question the concept of East and West and the process of modernization, urbanization, and national identity that is happening in Turkey against a rising tide of nationalism and religion."
