Street photographer from Istanbul who has been documenting streets and daily life in different places around the world. I have worked in Italy, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, France, Cape Town, Nepal, but most importantly in Japan, and many more places around Turkey and İstanbul.
Hi, my name is Mine (pronounced as Me-Neh)
I am a street photographer from Istanbul and travel as much as possible. Although I have a Master of Science in Chemistry and I worked as a patent attorney for 11 years, I quit my daily job in May 2018 to pursue my passion in photography. It was my biggest hobby and dream along with traveling, and now it became something more.
As a street photographer, I prefer to hunt the moments of the daily life. I tend to picture these sequences as cinematic scenes in my mind. Since we do not live in a black and white world, I prefer shooting with colors as I see it.
I am a Fujifilm user since 2013 and since 2018 I have been using Fuji-XH1.
I have participated in many exhibitions so far and now my aim is to open my first solo exhibition and even publish a photography book to share the beauty I see within people and their daily lives with the world.
