CPA is pleased to announce a special lecture with award-winning photographer, Murat Yazar. Murat will talk about his photo book project, Shadows of Kurdistan, a photographic research of a cultural identity. He made this photography project in four parts of Kurdistan (Turkey, Iraq, Iran and Syria).
Murat Yazar is originally from a small Kurdish village near the Euphrates River in Turkish Kurdistan. Murat’s photography questions whether imposed borders or boundaries are the mark of our humanity. His photographic projects seek to bring people together, with details and differences celebrated in a single book or exhibition room. Murat is a Kurdish photographer from Eastern Turkey. He has created photographic projects in his home country and in the Middle East, Armenia, Georgia, and Europe. Murat crossed Anatolia into Georgia by walking 1200 km as part of the Out of Eden project. Murat is the recipient of numerous awards and his work has been exhibited internationally. His photographs have been featured in many publications including National Geographic Magazine, Now Magazine, The Times, IZ Magazine, Le Courrier, The New York Times, Artribune magazine, Travel Globe Magazine. His book,Â Shadows of Kurdistan, is a recently published photographic research project of a cultural identity.
