In Conversation: Samet Durgun and Alexa Becker

Originally took place online at the Impressions Gallery Photobook Fair 2021.

By Alexa Becker & Samet Durgun



Artist Samet Durgun in conversation with Alexa Becker from publisher Kehrer Verlag about Come Get your Honey, which uses the question, “What if photography is more about ‘listening’ than seeing?” to tell a story about the LGBTQIA+ refugee and asylum seekers in Berlin.


Samet Durgun strives to depict each individual as complex human beings in their wholeness, trying to establish a new home in a foreign country and in an extremely polarized political climate.
