Ahmet Polat on Fotopub Still TV
A podcast interview with Ahmet Polat, (Roosendaal, 1978), a young Dutch-Turkish photographer living in Istanbul. Polat has studied at the St. Joost Academy in Breda and currently lectures at the AKI in Enschede and the Marmara University in Istanbul. In 2006, Ahmet Polat won the ICP Young Photographer Infinity Award.
Born of a Dutch mother and a Turkish father, growing up in a small village in the province of Brabant (NL), Polat made photographing diversity his leitmotif. In 2005, shortly after the murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, he decided to leave the Netherlands and settle in Istanbul.
