Sweet Nothings: The Small Schoolgirls of the Borderlands in Eastern Anatolia by Vanessa Winship. A Review.
Sweet Nothings: The Small Schoolgirls of the Borderlands in Eastern Anatolia by Vanessa Winship. A Review.: "They are just here, that’s all, in this place of borders, on the threshold of becoming. What do their faces tell us? Are they sisters? Are they friends? It’s not clear, even, when these photographs were taken. There is an archaic quality about them, as if the camera is a time machine and we’re looking through the lens to another time, another era, maybe a century ago."

The Power of the Light: "Why on earth would the power of the light want to banish the glamour of this world, when it's a perfectly good world, I was thinking? And what about the birds and the trees and the animals: would it want to banish them as well? I mean, where would they go once the world had been banished? The only thing I could see that might be worth banishing was what us human beings have done to it. So maybe I could have agreed with the power of the light had it wanted to banish the cock-ups of humanity."
