Diyarbakir in southeast Turkey is ridden by politics. Plastered all over the city walls are the 'PKK' abbreviations for the Kurdish terrorist group. Recently, the emerging Kurdish community organization, the 'KCK' ("Union of Communities of Kurdistan") have been threatened by arrests for links to the PKK. In all this, the city experiences riots constantly.

Pulitzer Center grantee Jenna Krajeski captures the city in its diversity, development and history. Krajeski chronicles life in Diyarbakir through the city's mayor, Abdullah Dabarbash, a member of the pro-Kurdish political party, the BDP.
