Digital Collage Artist Shows Stark Contrast Between Different Worlds

Artist Uğur Gallenkuş portrays two different worlds within a single image. Combining a pair of side-by-side photographs—one of the Western world and the other of the Middle East—he highlights how, despite living on the same planet, these places couldn’t be more different.

“I live in Turkey, which happens to be located next door to one of the most dangerous regions in the modern world,” Gallenkuş writes. The contrast he sees between scenes in the West and the Middle East inspired him to create the ongoing series of heartbreaking collages.
