Rojekê, One Day is a photo exhibit on the day-to-day lives of Kurd guerillas fighting for their people, mistreated for close to 40 years. These pictures were taken in the Qandil Mountains (the PKK headquarters) as well as in the towns of Makhmur and Kirkuk. The goal of these wartime images is to intercept loaded looks that exist for only an instant, to immortalize them by capturing their emotion. And then there is the question of providing these guerillas the opportunity to tell their stories by sharing with onlookers part of their daily lives punctuated by soldiers’ activities. Those spectators can thus gain personal access to revolutionary women fighting for a democratic ideal, a chance to take hold of them in a certain intimacy. Rojekê, One Day is an exhibition that tells the story of the war by way of femal fighters faces.
