Engin Beri Photography
Engin, Art Institute of Chicago, 2014 • Photographed by Semih Aben

“Storyteller” is an overused term these days, but at heart, I am a storyteller.

I’m an introvert by nature and words don’t come easy to me, so I try to speak through my photographs. I tend to document my own life and surroundings, and photograph things that are meaningful or exciting to me on a personal level. I shoot in documentary style – blend in / disappear in the crowd and make spontaneous, unstaged images. I love the imperfection of all things. The beauty of faces beneath wrinkled layers of life. Blue skies turning dark and stormy. I’m usually in love with what I choose to photograph. In that sense, I tell love stories.

I’m available to discuss collaborative projects and / or freelance commissions, as well as photographing life and live events, such as couples or live performances.
