After landing in Istanbul unaware of everything, a long wait started. "The buses I got on without knowing where I was taken in the city where I lived were the beginning of a 14-day experience" (Day 1).

QUARENTINED series as video and photo; It tells about the anxiety, anger, desire to return home, the in-between situation, the effort to escape and the state of despair of the people with whom I share the same experience.

The emotional state of the established borders varies according to the geography you grew up in.
