Remembering Gallipoli is a photographic exploration of the descendants of the Anzac and Turkish soldiers who fought in Gallipoli

With this body of work Mine Konakci explores the unusual friendship that has arisen between the descendants of the Turkish and ANZAC soldiers since the fighting and anguish of the Gallipoli campaign. This campaign played a major role for the development of national identity in Australian, New Zealand and Turkey. 

Although both sides experienced heavy losses and immense hardship during the eight-month campaign, cigarettes were bartered with, matches were traded and chocolates gifted. In this unique environment, bonds were formed and friendships established between the soldiers in the trenches.

Remembering Gallipoli documents direct descendants of Anzac and Turkish (Ottoman) soldiers who fought in the 1915 Gallipoli campaign during World War I. The subjects are photographed with a projected image of their ancestor in an attempt to illuminate the relationship between the soldiers who fought in Gallipoli and their descendants.
