«My family is from Sitia, and it’s so conservative, so I came to Estambul to live the life I want.

Sara, 23 YEARS OLD.

In this project we worked on the feminine representation of the two faces of the emblematic Istanbul, the capital of Turkish capital, which is divided between the European part, full of modernity and freedom, and the Middle Eastern part, much more conservative and traditional.

In the project, different women were interviewed to understand their relationship with the city, and were asked to bring two outfits that represented how Turkish society wants to see them and how they socially dressed in the Eastern part, and how they felt freely represented in the more modern part of Istanbul.
