Some of Merdan Ghappar’s modeling images. Uyghurs are popular as models in China, because they are thought to look partly “western.”

Participatory Citizenship

In my profession a lot of people ask me where I am coming from. If I have time I explain them that I come originally from that place we call Spain, but that I don’t feel Spanish, I just feel a citizen of the world, a person, a human being… that I don’t see nationalities, I see people, and that the people that are trying to do “good” in this world they are my brothers, no matter where they are coming from. We are just a humanity, and any other category is limiting for starting to think about commonwealth and peace.  Ying yang, the unity.
