The photographic series " Avogadro " is the portrait of Avni Akmehmetoglu , famous painter of Cihangir district of Istanbul .

Through some shots in black and white I put light on the aspects and lines which characterize this artist.

The title refers to the historical chemist and physicist Avogadro well known to Avni, who, having been in the past a chemist, decided after years of teaching to turn the street and devote himself assiduously to painting .

He is inspired by Picasso and other painters, creating an original style, extravagant, surreal and unconventional.

That series is at the end a journey inside his atelier, filming him deep in his own space, among his works.
