(Staff Translation)

Frances Dal Chele is a photographer. Italian-American, she has spent more years in Paris than in any other place on earth. And after she fell in love with the French Capital, she fell head over heels for Turkey. Not only the Turkey of Turkish delights, Turkish baths and palaces. But also the Turkey of booming cities, young people searching for their identity between group and individual, the endless suburbs. The Turkey of concrete. A photographer yearning to explore the question of identity, Frances wanted to witness this side of Turkey with the hope to
change the image Europeans have of this country.
