As of 2022 in Turkey, nearly 70 natural lakes larger than the whole surface of the Marmara Sea have dried up. All the remaining lake areas are battling with loss of natural texture, biodiversity, and are under a massive threat imposed mainly by wrong agricultural practices and pollution.
Focusing on this major environmental problem, the project Moribund" covers stories of 3 different lakes facing drought in the Central Anatolian region of Turkey: Eber, Aksehir, and Seyfe. Told through multimedia webstories combining photography, written text, and audio clips, Moribund takes the viewer on a journey through the plainlands of Anatolia as they witness this ongoing silent destruction and reconsider their place within nature.
