"Time in Turkey - art place berlin selection - 25 Masters of Photography"



"[...]I mainly worked in Bursa and I observed the city, streets and people. I watched how people gathered every evening for sema (whirling) ritual at Dervish Convent of Rumi which was recently restored. The attendants were not professionals; they were occupied with different jobs. They were gathering here every evening and praying, attending sema ritual and reading books. I have been to Istanbul, Denizli and Mersin within the scope of this work. However, I wanted the photos I took in Bursa to take place on the project.

I generally choose my photography topics according to issues and regions that interest me. To me, it is important for a photographer to work on the field he or she is interested. [...]What determines the work is the passion of the photographer towards the work. If I establish a strong emotional relationship with my photography topic then I can come up with a successful result."
