Murat Yazar’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 photo 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.
