I'm from Istanbul, Turkey. After having my MFA in Photography at Academy of Art University in San Francisco and after living in California for several years, I moved back to Istanbul . I shoot mostly portraits and express my inner, imaginative world through them. I'm interested in ideas, psychology, magical, surreal elements of life and expressing them in my works with a dreamy feeling.  My work has been exhibited at galleries throughout San Francisco, as well as publications and magazines.
