Ahmet Unver‘s project is a sensitive investigation into Turkish immigrants living in Sweden today. Far Away documents the Swedish landscape and looks at the Turkish community, who still do not feel a part of Swedish society. Unver’s parents moved from Turkey to Sweden as migrant workers hoping to someday return to their homeland. These photographs exemplify his feelings of isolation and his search for identity.
Far Away is Ahmet Unver’s first book and can be purchased from Journal.



In 2008 I decided to move to Istanbul from Sweden, where I was born and raised, to make myself more familiar with the culture that I inherited from my parents. A culture I thought I knew and identified with until I moved there. I quickly realised that I was neither tourist nor local and the sense of detachment was there from the very beginning. The sense of loneliness in a culture inherently mine, yet strangely foreign.

Book project coming soon.




Vårberg is a suburb south of Stockholm where I was born and grew up in. This is a work in progress at this time.



Born in Stockholm, Ahmet is a photographer currently based in London but also works between Stockholm and Istanbul on personal projects and commissions for clients such as WEEKDAY, Maria Black, BON, Port Magazine, Telegraph Luxury, Sleek, Harper’s Bazaar, L’Officiel, GQ and Vogue. His first monograph Far Away was published by Swedish publisher Journal which has been exhibited at Fotografiska Museet in Stockholm and Selected for Hasselblad Center’s exhibition Published – Photo Books in Sweden, Gothenburg Museum of Art 2018.
