ARTIST'S STATEMENT //

I was particularly interested in art, painting and with the introduction of the internet and digital photography into our lives, I turned to photography. I started to subscribe to photo sites on the Internet and for a long time I just watched. Then I bought a small compact machine, telling myself "why don't I just do it too". I did not receive any training in photography. I developed myself completely by my observations and reading. I practiced on the streets all the time.

Being on the streets, documenting those ordinary, simple moments makes me happy. As Saul Leiter said, “I happen to believe in the beauty of simple things. I believe that the most uninteresting thing can be very interesting.” By adopting this saying as my philosophy, I try to discover those short moments and beauties in our daily rush.
