“Diving is freedom” is about disabled children trying to find their place in the society through swimming and diving, and about people from the Uludağ Universitiy Underwater Club helping them to achieve this goal. Through their portfolio Omer and Fatma are trying to raise awareness of this hard task picturing the resolution on the faces of the children willing to fight and overcome their disability, and love, encouragement and patience of their tutors assisting them with this difficult struggle.

If you are not able to make it to the exhibition, you can have a peek on the sample of Omer and Fatma’s photographs in the Guest Gallery on my website and also learn more about who they are.

Last month I have announced the opening the Guest Gallery Project and Omer with Fatma are the first participants. I hope to have some more of you fellow photographers participating and showing us some of your photographic work.
