No Other Home: Crimean Tatars
No Other Home: Crimean Tatars is a multi-media project that explores the idea of "home" among Crimean Tatars trying to settle in their homeland after fifty years in exile. Utilizing photographs, ethnographic recordings, video and the written word, the project aims to illustrate complexities involved in the repatriation process. In a broader context, it seeks to promote an understanding of the rights of minority or indigenous people in disputed territories such as Crimea.

The returnees have not been able to get back the homes they left behind. Neither have they received compensation for the lost property. (Photograph by Alison Cartwright.)
