I’m a multidisciplinary designer and a self-taught photographer based in Queens, New York. I was born in Istanbul, Türkiye, and immigrated to the United States at the age of 25.

I started photography at fifteen with a film camera and began shooting professionally in my thirties, with digital. My work explores all aspects of the urban environment, combining elements of portrait, fine art, documentary, and architecture photography, inspired in large by the two metropolises I call home: Istanbul and New York.

What I fail to articulate with words, I attempt to express through my photographs. I’m usually in love with what I choose to photograph—in that sense, I tell love stories.

My commissioned work has been published in the New York Times and Time Out New York.
