‘Stray dog’ is a long term black and white project that dwells on Istanbul and people, animals, objects on its streets. It simply developed out of the relation between the city and myself. I am trying to reach out to the viewer in an effort to unveil the complexity of ordinary scenes of life.
Most of the photographs emerged from an effort to interpret the movements of people in order to open for the viewer new channels of reflection. Which, in terms of the emotion it conveys, seems to have resulted in melancholy, desertion, irony, absurdity and even farce.
