Arjen Zwart and Peter Edel - two Dutch photographers living in Turkey

After they had met several years ago, a plan gradually developed to show Turkey through different interpretations of photography with a joint exhibition. From an almost monochrome Istanbul portrayed by Arjen Zwart, to Turkish nature in all its colourful glory by Peter Edel. However, they meet each other in a quest for the abstract. Photography and the abstract seems like an odd combination at first. For after all, photography is known to be bound to reality. But as the work of Zwart and Edel shows, the abstract is part of reality. Moreover, their work shows that the abstract is abundant in Turkey, a country which was explored by both to create their photographs.
