Hello, I'm Uğur, and I live in Turkey. I'm trying to show the sad reality the world is facing, such as social injustice and life in the war zone, by putting two war and peace pictures side-by-side within a single frame. By taking these sad photos, I want to demonstrate the contrasts between the two different worlds we live in.

An image can sometimes be more effective than a thousand words. Many complicated words can describe the solution to a crisis, but you don’t need to know a language to read and understand a work of art. Art is the master of all languages. It has been used to raise awareness and call to action for a very long time.

I wish that the whole world would live by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk’s phrase "Peace at Home, Peace in the World," which was implemented as the foreign policy of Turkey.

Some of my photo manipulation work was previously featured on Bored Panda here and here, and I would like to share my new photo collages.

let's be fair. The smoke coming from the industrial complexes are steam coming from nuclear cooling towers. They do not produce greenhouse gases. Am I right about this?

Many of those imprisoned were innocent- war prisoners. Inhumanly tortured. I guess when you invade a country, international human laws don't apply. Sad

I wouldn't call it a tale when you invade countries and commit war crimes left and right. I lived it. I saw the atrocities. Stop the violence in the name of your beliefs.

BOTH are working on their own causes. It's up to the "artist" to draw on the pretentious conclusion of what's right or wrong in their very own personal and limited way. I'm not understanding all of this. Are we supposed to feel guilty? I don't. I'm actually insulted and I think the creator of these self serving pretentious works needs to understand the world more.

Looking at things like this reminds me just how lucky I am and how I should always be grateful. No one should ever have to grow up in harsh environments.

ok, Ojberretta Berretta, this is like your 4th comment that ive noticed on this post and let me just say. YOU NEED TO COOL IT OK. I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE A VERY GRAPHIC PERSPECTIVE OF THIS PICTURE BUT THIS IS not the best place to do that so if you dont mind, please refrain from being a butthole in the comments.
