Expressions II: A Window to Demonstrations

Aside from being a photographer, following the forms of expression of people, observing them, creating scenarios what kind of lives they experience, considering myself in their places in order to question my possible attitude towards the circumstances that they experience is a great passion that I could not give up since my childhood. In fact, the work done when I take photographs is just recording this passion on a film surface. Naturally, images that I record are the documents those belong to expression forms of people and every single image I recorded includes a part from me as well.

The photographs I hereby present within the scope of this project consist of moments recorded at the demonstrations which are one of the circumstances that people express themselves. These demonstrations are the demonstrations that I also express myself. In other words, images in this project are naturally my observations at some demonstrations I participated; and they are also me to a certain extend.

All photographs you see in this series were created in Istanbul between the years 2005-2011.
