Ahmet Unver‘s project is a sensitive investigation into Turkish immigrants living in Sweden today. Far Away documents the Swedish landscape and looks at the Turkish community, who still do not feel a part of Swedish society. Unver’s parents moved from Turkey to Sweden as migrant workers hoping to someday return to their homeland. These photographs exemplify his feelings of isolation and his search for identity.
