Side-By-Side Photos Show How Tragically Different Life Is In War-Torn Countries

News broadcasts and stories on social media highlight the casualties and destruction of war in the Middle East.

Artist Uğur Gallenkuş is showcasing just how tragic the contrast in daily life can be between these two parts of our planet.
