  • I take photos of my drawing  from portraits and combine them with my other photos, which creates a unique result that has attracted the attention of various magazines and competition judges.  Maybe the result of the work is not the way we imagine photography, but it is more something between photos, graphics and paintings, and in fact, this fluidity between different media is attractive to me, and I can share my words and minds with others.  For the first time in 2018, LensCulture sent me an email that saw my  these pictures on Instagram and invited me to participate in their competitions, and this became the motivation to continue this way.  Therefore, I am sharing with you one of the images created from a collection that was created during the Covid-19 era, which is a combination of a photo of a portrait drawing  and an X-ray film.  During this time when my family and I were involved in this disease, I witnessed that my family and the people of the world were overcome with fear.  It was like a plague and the doctors prescribed an X-ray and CT scan of the lungs to know the extent of lung involvement.  I put these photos on the faces like a mask to show the fear and desperation on the faces of the people during that troubled time.  In this era, people were exposed to X-ray radiation more than ever before, and I witnessed how the patient and his family were terrified for every patient for whom the doctor prescribed X-ray of the lungs.  I named this collection "X-Ray Melancholia".

  • “Morning Bliss”, there is nothing better than being out in nature, breathing the crisp cold air, the sights and sounds of nothingness. Just you and the open sky.
