Vanessa Winship: "Sweet Nothings: Rural Schoolgirls from the Borderlans of Easter Antolia:
This is one of my favorite photography projects. As with most photo things I learn about, Jon told me about it. Upon first view there is an othering exoticism & antiqueness to the work, but beyond that an individual personality for each of the girls comes out so strongly in these pieces. They keep pulling me back to the actual girls, rather than a categorized idea I might have about rural schoolkids from Turkey.
You can see a wide selection of the project here.
