El artista turco Ugur Gallenkus usa fotografías con una estética similar para contrastar las realidades opuestas en el mundo: la sociedad de consumo y la pobreza, la guerra y la paz o la tranquilidad del hogar y el drama de la migración. Este es su trabajo.
El trabajo Ugur Gallenkus expone de manera convincente muchos de los dramas de la sociedad actual. Usando imágenes con una estética similar, este fotógrafo turco exhibe los contrastes entre dos realidades opuestas: un mundo que habla de Derechos Humanos y otro que los viola, un mundo que habla de pobreza y otro que ostenta su riqueza, uno que habla desde la comodidad de su hogar y otro que está sumergido en el drama de la migración.

Desde 2019, este artista se ha propuesto visualizar las diferencias de la sociedad actual, entregando en cada uno de sus collages una reflexión. Gran parte de su trabajo se ha concentrado en contrastar la vida entre el mundo Occidental y la realidad en Oriente, como en la pieza en la que se observa a una familia disfrutando de la playa mientras otros luchan por un futuro incierto en el Mediterráneo. Sin embargo, su trabajo se ha ido extendiendo a mostrar el drama de otras regiones en el mundo como en Latinoamérica. Esta es una selección de su trabajo.
Two child labourers eating their lunch during a break at the factory they work. Dhaka, Bangladesh. According the WHO (World Health Organization), childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century. The problem is global and is steadily affecting many low- and middle-income countries, particularly in urban settings. The prevalence has increased at an alarming rate. Globally, in 2016 the number of overweight children under the age of five, is estimated to be over 41 million. Almost half of all overweight children under 5 lived in Asia and one quarter lived in Africa. Overweight and obese children are likely to stay obese into adulthood and more likely to develop noncommunicable diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular diseases at a younger age. Overweight and obesity, as well as their related diseases, are largely preventable. Prevention of childhood obesity therefore needs high priority. You don't forget in 2016, an estimated 1.6 million deaths were directly caused by diabetes. Another 2.2 million deaths were attributable to high blood glucose in 2012. I know, it still happens that children die from starvation. But today, the rate of deaths from starvation at large is now low.(According to the rate of deaths due to obesity) For these problems, adequate support can be provided to all over the world within 24 hours by state and non-governmental organizations. If there are deaths from starvation at the moment at anywhere, it is the politicians who are responsible. You can be sure that politicians are consciously doing and want this. .

Young drug traffickers pose for photos holding their guns at a slum in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on July 11, 2016. Teenage boys openly tote guns as they run in flip-flops through a maze of alleys. Brazil is one of the most violent countries in the world with a national homicide rate of 27.1 per 100,000 inhabitants. A large part of this violence and criminality can be linked to arms and drug trafficking operations by organized crime groups. Brazil is dealing with rising violence, a lot of it related to the illegal drug trade. Most of the victims are young. In 2016 alone, more than 33,000 Brazilian teens and adults under the age of 30 were killed by homicide. . Photo: Felipe Dana @felipedana @apnews . #ParalelEvrenSavaşBarış
