Which impact do politics and the economy have on life in Turkey? This contribution is trying to show the different consequences of inflation and political decisions on particular life realities. In the following portraits, nine people are describing their daily lives, wishes and struggles. All of them are/have been working or living in Kadıköy, a neighborhood in Istanbul, which is known for its cool, lively and international atmosphere.

It's getting worse and worse, comparing the current situation with previous years. The government has to change a lot or be changed itself!
