About me and Photography:
I am from Istanbul, Turkey. The roads took me to my university education where I met my lovely wife. I was amazed with the old dark streets of Istanbul Besiktas hills that are illuminated with bright yellow lights. With a film camera, I learned how to print in the darkroom, developing films and printing in black and white from my grandfather. Subsequently, for about twenty years, I dedicate myself to street photography that could satisfy me also on an emotional level. We lived in Paris for five years, I moved back and forth between Paris and Istanbul due to my Job, knowing all too well the streets of both cities, and what is in between. I was working in a global lighting company, Light and Shadow is my work and my passion. I am hoping to create a portrait of the dark & shadows of the beautiful cities.
