A Campaign for A Gazelle
Karaşeyhler, Pazarköy in northern Turkey is the village where my mother was born.
In this village where respectful and friendly people live, sometimes even animals belonging to natural life can be sheltered.
Little Gazelle Kader (Destiny) is one of them.
When my friend Nevzat finds it in the jungle, it is about to die a starving baby gazelle. Nevzat was like its mother.
Last year the government took Kader. Traditional musical instrument master Kemal, Nevzat and the villagers have launched a campaign to get Kader back.
Teacher Burcu and his students also work for the campaign.
But they have not been successful.
I have done this project in the past two years with photographs taken during my visits to my father and mother.
