Ugur Gallenkush lives in Istanbul, Turkey. He tries to show the important problems facing the world, such as social injustice and war, by putting two photos side by side in one frame. By this, he wants to demonstrate the contrast between the two different worlds in which we live.
1.Oct 11, 2014, a woman walks past tents in a Syrian refugee camp in the Turkish city of Suruch in Sanlıurfa province.
2. A Syrian refugee carries his daughter to the Greek-Macedonian border, 2015.
3. Mohammed Mohidine Anis, or Abu Omar, 70 years old, smokes a pipe while sitting in his ruined bedroom listening to music on his vinyl, gramophone, in Aleppo.
4. A boy with a weapon in a military training complex during the civil war in Liberia.
5. Refugees and migrants from Eritrea, Mali, Bangladesh, and other countries wait aboard a rescue boat in the Mediterranean Sea, 27 kilometers north of Sabrata, Libya.
6. In December 2005, in South Sudan, a boy drinks water from the Akuem River, near the village of Malual Kon in Bahr el-Ghazal state. Only about a third of the population has access to safe drinking water, and the threat of water-borne diseases has increased as cities swell due to the return of refugees after decades of civil war.
7. A refugee girl from Rohingya next to newly arrived refugees who fled to Bangladesh from Myanmar in Uhia on September 6, 2017.
8.On April 13, 2004, 4-year-old Ali Nassar Fadil lies in a ward in an Italian Red Cross hospital, having lost his left arm and leg 5 days ago in an explosion caused by American troops who fired from the air, killing his grandfather and 9 others people in Fallujah, Iraq.
9. A classroom completely destroyed after the Taliban attack in Swabi, Pakistan. August 2012.
10. Nine-year-old Aladdin collects used ammunition for sale as metal in Aleppo, Syria.
11. A Syrian boy sits on a destroyed tank in Syria in 2015.
12. On June 1, 2003, people gather to get water from a huge well in the village of Natvarghad in the western Indian state of Gujarat.
13. Don't buy, take at the shelter.
14. Children of Syrian refugee families use paving stones as pillows in Erbil, Iraq, 2013.
15. Children bear the cruel cost of endless war. When 10 children from the same family were attending school last year, they came across an unexploded mortar bomb - a common sight in Afghanistan, where war still rages between the Taliban and US-backed national forces. Not understanding what it was, or the dangers she presented, the curious children took the device to show their aunt. And then it exploded. Three children were killed and the other seven lost at least one limb each. It's just unexploded ordnance. There are thousands of civilians and children who have been killed or maimed in terrorist attacks by the Taliban and airstrikes by US or US national forces.
