Born in 1989 to a Turkish father and Swiss-Iranian mother, his fascination with culture and tradition started from an early age. He became captivated by foreign films, sports, and food. After completing his studies at the French Lycee Sainte Pulcherie and Istek Vakfi Okullari in Istanbul, he moved to England to study Marketing & Sports Coaching at Oxford Brookes University. By chance, he embarked on a short film class where he discovered cameras and was immediately fascinated. This newfound passion led him to Los Angeles where he took an intensive film course at the New-York Film Academy. Since finishing, he travelled across Norway, eastern Europe, Iran and eventually to Asia where his work in Thailand cemented his desire to work as a travel photographer.
He believes that there is something especially touching about the way of life in southern Asia and the kindness of the people there. This made him start documenting societies that have no voice or power, that are neglected by modern societies and forgotten. The people you will encounter in his photos are the normal people we walk side by side with, yet generally don’t pay any attention to as we pass. They are the obscure heroes of our daily lives.
