Au-delà de Mer

‘Au-dela de mer’ is a dummy book I produced from the photos of my personal archive(2018-Present). The title translates as ‘beyond the sea’. In this body of work I explore the idiosyncrasies of my family members and the dynamics within, reflecting on feelings of longing and nostalgia born out of my displacement. Cyanotype prints, pressed flowers and words from a poem of Didem Madak, accompany the photographs.

The images included in the book sit within a wider body of work-in-progress.

“Now, I am in a miraculous place
Time is living inside the body of a snail here,
and it is moving very slowly..”

From ‘Things About My Mother’ by Didem Madak
