About

I got interested in photography in 2004.

Main subjects of my photography are people and life. I am trying to do this in a comtemporary way with strong realism.

I tell stories of everyday life of the people on the backstreets of Istanbul and aim to form my own language of photography by using the modern as well as the classic aspects of photography. I often go on photography trips abroad to take a glimpse of those cultures from my point of view and itroduce them back home by means of sequential exhibitions in long term.

I worked on photography series about everyday life of Istanbul and I exhibited most of them with solo projects  in Russia, Ukraine and Tatarstan. My first solo exhibition in Turkey has been opened in Istanbul Photography Museum named as Railway Stories

In october 2014, I took part in the Foto Istanbul (1.Istanbul International Photography Festival) with my solo exhibition to which 3 million people attened as visitors.

I was invited  and took part as guest photographer to Tama Log Project supported by Okayama city prefecture in Japan from October to November in 2015. As the core part of the project I photographed Tamashima region, a part of Okayama city and this work has been displayed at Yumikobo art gallery where it met many Japanese people interested in art and photography. Besides, along with my colleagues, we have organized many events in order to introduce Turkish culture to people in the region.

Shintoism and Zen Buddhism  photos from this project has been published on Atlas magazine (geography and discovery magazine ) on The March 2016 issue.

Currently I am workin on photography projects in different countries.
