website with manipulated photographs of Kemal Atatürk (founder of modern Turkey), english/turkish
Everywhere in Turkey you will find portraits of Atatürk in shops, offices und tea rooms. The founder of modern Turkey is famous for his radical modernisation of Turkey but also for military dictatorship and censorship. By the Atatürk Protection Law (5816) it is still forbidden to critizise or denigrate his memory, also in art. However, there are a lot of manipulation of photographs, showing Atatürk in a heroical or sternly pose.
