Doubleportrait (displaced), Serdar + Selma, 2009, c-print, diasec, 34.5 x 28.5 cm each

Doubleportrait (displaced) is a new series of photographs based on the tradition of painted doubleportraits. It brings together two people who nominate each other as their counterpart for the portrait, the person they each feel closest to but from whom they are separated by migration. The people in each diptych are in fact Turkish, one lives in London, the other in Istanbul. They may share their lives in their hearts and minds yet physically and spatially they are displaced. The relations and connections each pair vary: they are sisters, brothers, parents, best friends, ex-lovers.
