The Balkans and Turkey are so close to us in mainland Europe and yet so far in a political sense. For, five photographers of French, Argentine, Italian, Taiwanese, Turkish and Serbian nationalities visited five Balkan and Turkish capitals to put their pulse on the lives of our European neighbours.

The Orient Express Reporter images are part of the general project, comprised of monthly trips to eight Balkan capitals by a total of 34 young European, Balkan and Turkish journalists across Europe.

Between 10-19 May, the French cultural association Labo 13 will host 17 images illustrating our experience in the Balkans and Turkey. Our avant-premiere takes place on 12 May.
