I was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1996. I’m an artist specialising in photography and video, currently undertaking a masters in documentary photography at UAL. My identity has had a huge influence on my work, and my work explores themes of identity, violence and memory.

I’ve worked in a variety of roles in films, most notably as executive producer, production manager, 3rd AD and video editor for several award winning films.

I am a member of Diversify Photo Up Next Photographers.
