The Barikat photography book in hardcover by Charles Emir Richards. It features photographs of the barricades during the Istanbul Gezi protests as well as writings by Ece Esmer and interviews with some of the families of those that fell during the Gezi uprising. The book is designed by Ali Gurevin and will be published by Fotograf Evi. We need your help to publish this photo book. You can follow the progress of the book at facebook.com/Barikat.the.Book. Thank you.

Risks and challenges

We have had the great fortune to collaborate with incredible designers and a wonderful publishing house during the course of the this project to create a unique book that will stand the test of time. Unfortunately, this comes at no small cost. Over 20,000 students and thousands more took part in the Gezi protests. By reaching our goal we will be able to keep the cost low enough so that everyone that took part can put a hardcover copy of Barikat on their bookshelf.
