“Sometimes, you can’t really feel anything”

Bulent Kilic è il fotografo dell’anno secondo il Time. Le sue immagini sono ovunque, anche purtroppo a causa dei conflitti che si sono susseguiti nell’ultimo periodo.

L’anno di Kilic, fotografo professionista della AFP, ha inizio in Ucraina dove le proteste pro-Europa hanno cominciato a farsi insistenti e serie da gennaio. Era seduto davanti alla televisione a guardare il telegiornale con la sua famiglia. Ha deciso di partire subito e poche ore più tardi si trovava a Kiev.

A protester holds an Ukranian national flag from a burned building during a face-off against police on February 20, 2014 in Kiev. Ukraine's embattled leader announced a "truce" with the opposition as he prepared to get grilled by visiting EU diplomats over clashes that killed 26 and left the government facing diplomatic isolation. The shocking scale of the violence three months into the crisis brought expressions of grave concern from the West and condemnation of an "attempted coup" by the Kremlin.

Tornato a casa, a maggio riparte per il distretto di Soma, uno dei distretti di Manisa, in Turchia, dove a causa di un’esplosione morirono 301 minatori. Una delle più grandi tragedie della storia turca. Kilic era lì prima delle organizzazioni internazionali e della stampa.

Il 15 settembre apprende dalla radio della mobilitazione della popolazione curda verso Kobani. Neanche a dirlo, il giorno dopo si trova su una collina curda che si affaccia sulla zona del conflitto, a Yumurtalik, sommità che gli permetteva di avere il controllo sui combattimenti tra le forze curde e l’ISIS.

Islamic State fighters are pushing towards a key Kurdish town on Syria's border with Turkey, whose parliament is set on October 2 to consider authorising military intervention against the jihadists on its doorstep. Kurdish fighters backed by US-led air strikes were locked in fierce fighting Wednesday to prevent the besieged border town of Ain al-Arab (Kobane) from falling to the Islamic State group fighters.

A militant of Islamic State (IS) is seen just after an air strike  on Tilsehir hill near Turkish border on October 23, 2014, at Yumurtalik village, in Sanliurfa province. Turkey said on October 21 that Kurdish peshmerga fighters based in Iraq have yet to cross into Syria from Turkish territory, a day after announcing it was assisting their transit to join the battle for the Syrian town of Kobane, also known as Ain al-Arab. It was seen as a major switch in policy by Turkey, which until now has refused to interfere in the over month-long battle for Kobane between Syrian Kurdish fighters and Islamic State (IS) jihadists.

“Cosa si prova quando le persone muoiono intorno a te?”

“It wasn’t easy. But this is war, and these people are also killing other people. Sometimes, you can’t really feel anything. Sometimes, you don’t want to talk about it.”
