Gokhangogo creates art representing snapshots of his memories. Born in Istanbul, living in Paris. He is a photographer from Paris, France who does a variety of photography projects focusing on bnw, shadows, silhouettes and symbols of cities.
His photos are completely candid and undirected, which leads to the unknown outcome, the spontaneity of this type of street photography. During the process, it is unclear how the end result will be. When on the street, people are walking, bicycles are passing, sunlight is changing. This flow is continuing so every moment is precious and unique. Catching that moment is much more important than the quality of the photograph. Textures, Forms, Reflections, Whites and Dark blacks are his main tools for a new creation.
In his photos, most of the people’s faces are hidden from view. it is almost as if the shadow has removed the subject’s identities while imbuing them with a universal identity, where each person represents us, the viewers. The main ideas he study around is solitude and the psychological, philosophical, and spiritual human condition.
Gokhangogo’s artwork was featured on online media like eyeshot magazine, muse D’Orsay, bnw demand. Bronze Medal in the Category “shadows & reflection” in Paris international Street Photo Awards Photo contest 2020
