Two Continents One City
I have been living in Istanbul for 8 years. I photograph the city I live in with the inspiration I draw from street photography tradition. My works are not examples of conventional street photography which is common in Turkey but rather exhibit the chaos of the city and different visual analyses of it in categories. Naturally, I produced the photographs with certain connections between them and preserved the dynamism with a diversity, ranging from photographs of people sleeping to phone booths to people talking on the phone, from photographs which display smart device addiction to night photographs to tourist photographs. I generally work with the most famous locations of the city. My priority in my production process is to create my own journal with my photographs and I also focus on capturing timeless moments of people who live in the places I document.
