Artist Statement:

Street photography has been my main path as a photographer. It presents amazing opportunities of coincidences and conditions blending into impressive narration. I think of my photos as means of story telling rather than mere reporting. Taking photos for me is a way of self-expression, understanding how I see myself and the world around me, the way I feel about it. It is also the joy of surprise, new chances, new beginning, new impressions, new arrangements, new people, new relationships, new stories. Notion of style to me associates with reflection of the author 's personality and individual worldview in each and every photo he takes rather than with a series of photos in similar visual representation, or taken with same technique. When looking for my next photo, I am looking for its emotional value, feelings that it may evoke in the viewer. In the process of shooting I, first of all, focus on composition, with indispensable emphasis on aesthetic side of the image - another concept that I value. It is essential for me that people, who I take photos of, with or without their permission, feel good about themselves when they view their photos. Same is valid for the outside viewer. With all my appreciation of sincerity and genuineness, I strongly believe that art can help man transform, acquire confidence and tools for self realization and expression. Only then he can be free in society and in spirit. I am inspired by black and white, I believe it conveys complexity of the visual story is street photography the best, allows to concentrate on image itself bringing out the importance of composition. Black and white image has more drama too. Although, I do enjoy shooting with color as well, in cases where I find its visual domination appropriate - when I want to highlight certain elements in the image or emphasize something natural or vivid. For display, I usually work with 30x40cm or 50x70cm prints, however I may chose a larger scale presentation when the story that the image represents is better perceived as a bigger print, this is often case when I want to emphasize importance of surroundings, environment, space. Lately, I have been working on a couple of photography essays. I feel extremely happy to have had opportunities to exhibit one of these projects titled "Timeless City İstanbul and Faces" in various countries. It is my intention to continue sharing my work with photography lovers worldwide.
