NOW COMING TO NEW YORK!

The photo festival Photoville will present an outdoor exhibition of A New Beginning right underneath the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City. It will be on display from the 18th September to the 1st December 2021.

In collaboration with Melkweg Expo, together with Jenny Smets, United Photo Industries and with the support of the Consulate General of the Netherlands in New York.

 A New Beginning

Who are you and who do you want to become? And what if you had to reinvent yourself? In A New Beginning, photographer Cigdem Yuksel works with young people who, after their flight to the Netherlands, go in search of their (new) identity. The young people express themselves with tattoos, poems, rap or Instagram posts. They look cool and tough, but they are also fragile. Together with Cigdem they started looking for a way to tell their story.

Cigdem asked them what they feel when they think back to their journey, when they think about their fears, nightmares, the loss of their parents. What image, shape and color do they envision? How would they portray that? But she also looks at their future with the young people. How do they see themselves, now and later? Where do they get strength and pleasure from?

It resulted in an outdoor exhibition and a series of multimedia stories (in Dutch).
