‘When we speak from our living rooms about war, about riots, about terror, we look for indicators of right and wrong. We plainly classify heroes and villains, speak of crises as though they all look the same, and refer to The Middle East as a maelstrom of interchangeable cultures and ideologies.
While the components of these faraway conflicts are similar – martyrs and mourners, rebellion and righteousness – the context of each country’s revolution is singular in both motivation and approach.
During photographer Yuri Kozyrev’s travels throughout North Africa and the Middle East, he identified with these differences, and considered that perhaps each revolution deserves its own narrative.
On Revolution Road tells these stories.’
