Born in Istanbul in 1994. His interest in photography was sparked by his father, who gave him a vital piece of equipment that he carried along with him on school trips: his camera. His passion for photography materialized during the first year of high school, when he attended a few seminars given by Fototrek Photography Center. Participating in a Magnum Workshop held by Chien-Chi Chang in Heidelberg has widened his perspective as a young amateur photographer. After graduating from Deutsche Schule Istanbul, he studied mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Munich for 3 years. He left university to realize his dream of being a film director. After living in Germany for six years, during which he shot two short films, helped organize the Türkish Film Festival Munich for 3 years, and worked as an assistant director and editor in commercials, he decided to return to his hometown of Istanbul. Besides working in the film industry, he has recently been preparing his latest photo selection for exhibitions and working on getting the photos published as an anthology consisting of philosophical essays and photos. Parallelity, poetic contrast of the subjects, and irony are his favourite tools when composing his frame.
