TIME-LAPSE OF A COUP
On the night of July 15, 2016, soldiers took to the streets of Istanbul and Ankara and attempted to occupy strategic areas and crucial points of communication.
Answering the call of Erdogan, thousands of citizens also took to the streets and squares to oppose the coup d’état. They were everyday people, of every political affiliation, joining together in order to oppose a political change that could be brought about through the strength of the weapons.
These diptychs allow us to see, through a time-lapse, the faces of these ordinary citizens and the frantic moments of the coup when Turkey had decided its own destiny.
