Photographer Ahmet Polat (Roosendaal, 1978), born to a Turkish father and a Dutch mother, has always been motivated by a quest for identity. Continuously commuting between The Netherlands and Turkey he has become familiar with the question of what it means to be at ‘home’. This undefinable, sometimes uncanny feeling of growing up within two cultures has been translated photographically in a perpetual motion between the frustrated relations with the known and the unexpected understanding found in the gaze of a stranger; in careful compositions that nevertheless leave more questions than can be answered.
