Gezi Tanıklığı / Witnessing Gezi was created with the recordings of photojournalist Emin Özmen, who witnessed the protests against the urban development plan for Istanbul’s Taksim Gezi Park. Subsequently, the protests sparked supporting strikes across Turkey, turning into a resistance movement of great importance for the country. Witnessing Gezi shows the human aspect of this civil resistance, a crucial event of the last thirty years in Turkey.
Witnessing Gezi has been awarded First Prize (Long Feature Category) in World Press Photo’s 2014 Multimedia Contest. More information can be found here.
