Norman Behrendt

Brave New Turkey

Uno Art Space, Stuttgart, Allemagne

Brave New Turkey is a photographic research of new built mosques in a Neo-Ottoman-Style in the urban landscape of Turkey. Since 2014, Norman Behrendt travels to Turkey and visits the sprawling suburban districts of Ankara and Istanbul. These rapidly built endless suburban high-rise developments manifest the recent economical and demographical boom of Turkey. Along with the massive housing construction came a second massive construction project: the mosques. The pictures of Norman Behrendt are a strong documentary photography project, visualizing a phenomenon as a symbol of change and power that reaches beyond geographical borders.
