Ahmet Polat – Kemal’s Dream

text and image r.v.

The Turkish youth finds itself at the moment somewhere scattered on a scale of tradition to globalization. From an inside point of view is this spectrum wonderful documented in the photo series Kemal’s Dream which is being shown in the Amsterdam foam until December 8. For this purpose Ahmet Polat, himself a son of a Dutch mother and a Turkish father, crossed this country the last couple of years from East to West and from top to bottom. Eventually this resulted in images which in its eclectic collection of characters and the theme of East vs. West, tradition vs. modernity recall the work of Orhan Pamuk. Images which form a universe in itself, which invalidate the stereotype, which radiate an infectious vitality.
