Story: Gul Annem (living with Alzheimer’s)
Instructor:

“Since I am primarily interested in producing compelling human narratives through my photography, I decided to photograph a widowed Turkish Lady, Halima, who had Alzheimer’s disease and was living in an old age home in Istanbul.

I could see that Istanbul is a rapidly developing city at par with its European counterparts… but private old age homes are a new concept in an otherwise traditional family oriented population. I chose to photograph Halima in the hope that my photographs could show the change in the outlook of Turkey’s younger generation towards traditional family values and beliefs”.
