Artist Uğur Gallenkuş has created powerful images by combining a pair of side-by-side photographs. One of the Western world and the other of the Middle East highlights how, despite living on the same planet, couldn’t be more different.

The artist who uploaded the images to the Bored Panda had this to say about his work:

“Hello, I’m Uğur and I live in Turkey. I’m trying to show the important issues the world is facing, such as social injustice and war, by putting two pictures side-by-side within a single frame. By doing this, I want to demonstrate the contrasts between the two different worlds we live in. An image can sometimes be more effective than a thousand words. The solution to a crisis can be described by many complicated words, but you don’t need to know a language to read and understand a work of art. Art is the master of all languages. It has been used to raise awareness and call to action for a very long time. I wish that the whole world would live by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk’s phrase “Peace at Home, Peace in the World”, which was implemented as the foreign policy of Turkey.”
