Bio

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    love              to           

                                              create   

 conceptual photography

 

                                                 where 

 

    I can

                     

           express my inner,

                                           imaginative

                                                                      world.

 

I'm interested in

              ideas,

 

           magical                                                       elements in life and

 

                expressing them in my work 

                                                                with a dreamy feeling. 

 

My work's  been exhibited 

                                                  at galleries throughout

                  San Francisco,

                                                          Istanbul and Mugla 

as well as

 

                        publications and magazines. 

Here  is

                                      my   e-mail adress
