After nearly losing his life documenting conflict in Libya, photographer, Guy Martin, turned his attention to a seemingly less dangerous project: documenting on set of Turkish soap operas. After a failed coup against the Turkish government in 2016 and the protests that ensued, Martin began photographing protesters taking part in the demonstrations. Parallel State alternates between images of TV set productions and pictures of street protests, resulting in a multidimensional body of work.
