By experimenting with flashing light and saturated color schemes, Arko Datto reveals how cultural and political tensions are reflected in the darkness of his native country's nighttime. The project — shot over the span of four years — was recently displayed at the seventh edition of UNSEEN Amsterdam. UNSEEN has now expanded into an all-year-round platform for contemporary photography.
