Umut Erbaş

He was born on 1991 in Silivri. Started his academic career at Istanbul University Faculty of Literature on Art History in 2010, but then quitting his education there, he transferred to the Department of Photography and Video Programme, Yıldız Technical University Art and Design Faculty. He still lives in Istanbul and continues his studies at Yıldız Technical University. The artist, in every sense tortures the photograph that he thinks it reminds his lost memories. He burns it, changes it by manipulations of his will in the dark room, takes multi shots with analogue camera by mixing the moments in a row.

He scratches it, covers it with various chemicals, makes drawings on it. This way he both travels through the lost moments , tries to reflect the blurriness of memory; and tests the endurance of his own memories and griefs.
