Samet Durgun uses the question “What if photography is more about ‘listening’ than seeing?” as a compass to narrate stories about communities and individuals with intricate identities, like himself. Those stories depict contemporary forms of intimacy, vulnerability, trauma, survival, power, resilience, courage, joy, and empowerment. He holds a BA from Bogazici University, Turkey. As a first-generation immigrant and self-taught artist in Germany, he was recently a guest student at the College of Fine Arts Berlin (UdK), participating in “Common Ground”, a support program for artists who fled or immigrated to Germany. His artworks are shown in local and international exhibition spaces, including the Berlin Museum of Photography.
