Five Roads Back Home Istanbul Exhibition Opening in Tophane i Amire

More than 200 guests attended the opening of an emotionally-charged exhibition focusing on the stark faces of some of the estimated 875,000 Azerbaijani refugees and IDPs – the ongoing victims of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict – in the 14th Century Tophane-i Amire Culture and Arts Centre (Mimar Sinan University) in Istanbul on 5 June. This moving exhibition was organised by TEAS Turkey, and showcased the outstanding and inspirational work of the renowned German photographer Philipp Rathmer. All 50 photographs were taken in Azerbaijan in the IDP camps of Takhtakorpu and Gunzali, near the Armenian border, and Darnagul and Gizilgum, located north of Baku.
