Differences Between Western World and War-Torn Middle East

What began as peaceful uprising against the president of Syria seven years ago has now turned into a full-scale civil war. The Syrian conflict has left more than 350,000 people dead, and devastated entire cities, leaving its remaining residents no choice but to flee for their lives. To raise awareness of these issues, Istanbul-based artist Uğur Gallenkuş created a digital collage series, showing the stark contrast between the Western world and the destructive chaos of the Middle East.
