“Tuğba Tekerek told me of photographers who, when attempting to take pictures in war-ridden areas, were met with willful intimidation from military snipers. In one case, a photographer visibly shaken by the riot gear and machine guns was asked by a special operations police officer, ‘Why are you so scared of my machine gun? Your camera is more powerful than my gun, and much scarier.'” Kaya Genç • Aperture
