I was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1996. While I was studying film, I took photography lessons as well. Since then, photograph has become a mode of survival for me. My identity has had a huge influence on my work, and my work explores themes of identity, violence and memory.
I am a member of Diversify Photo Up Next Photographers.
I also work as a line producer, production manager, and 3rd assistant director in films.
