Photography



Bu sayfanın başlığı fotoğraf ama bu benim profesyonel bir fotoğrafçı olduğum anlamına gelmiyor. On beş on altı yaşındayken en yakın arkadaşlarımla beraber fotoğrafçılık denemelerine başladık. Kimyasalları Sirkeci’den alıp o sırada kimin evi müsaitse orada bir karanlık oda kuruyorduk. Sonra da çıkıp bütün gün siyah beyaz fotoğraflar çekiyorduk!. Zaman zaman güçlüklerle karşılaştığımız oldu tabii ama sonunda tekniği kaptık. O siyah beyaz fotoğraflar bir takım kutularda duruyor hâlâ ama karanlık odada kimyasalları doğru dürüst yıkamadığımız için ne yazık ki bazıları siyah beyazdan çok sarı beyaz görünüyor! Bu çabalarımız aslında amacına da ulaştı ve en yakın dostlarımdan biri olan Kenan Sunar sonunda profesyonel bir fotoğrafçı oldu. Bu deneysel sürecin ardından Güzel Sanatlar Müzesi Üniversitesi’nde 3 dönem boyunca fotoğraf eğitimi aldım ve ışık, kompozisyon gibi temel fotoğraf prensipleri ve tekniklerini; karanlık odada film banyosu ve baskının nasıl yapıldığını öğrendim. Bugüne kadarki çalışmalarımdan bazılarını burada görebilirsiniz.

The title of this page may be photography but that doesn't mean that I am a professional photographer. When I was around 16 years old me and my closest friends starting experimenting with photography. We would buy our chemicals from Sirkeci (a neighborhood in Istanbul) set up a dark room in whomever's house was available at the time, and then go out shooting in black and white all day!. Of course we ran into some problems but we finally got the technique down.  We still have the black and white photographs packed away in some boxes but unfortunately some of them are  closer to yellow and white due to the fact that we didn't wash the chemicals off too well in the dark room! Our efforts did actually pay off as one of my closest friends Kenan Sunar ended up becoming a professional photographer.

After my experimental phase back in the days  I studied photography for 3 semesters at the School of The Museum of Fine Arts learning basic photography techniques and fundamentals such as lighting, photographic composition and  how to print and develop film in a dark room. Here is some of the work of I have produced so far.

Please feel free to comment on my work good or bad. Thanks

 A tribute to the library!

William Shakespeare refers to the nine lives myth in his play Romeo and Juliet. There is also an ancient proverb that claims, “A cat has nine lives. For three he plays, for three he strays and for the last three he stays."

Some people believe the nine lives myth is related to cats’ ability to always land on their feet. Cats are also known for their dexterity and agility.
Over time, people witnessed cats survive in situations that surely would have severely injured other animals. Some people likely began to believe that cats must have multiple lives.

In ancient Egypt, cats were sacred animals that were worshipped as gods. Ancient Egyptians believed that cats were divine creatures with psychic or supernatural powers. The idea that they could have multiple lives fit right in with their view of cats.

But why nine lives? No one knows the answer to that one either. There are many possibilities.

For example, the ancient Egyptian sun god, Atum-Ra, was believed to take the form of a cat on visits to the underworld.Legend has it that Atum-Ra gave birth to eight other gods and thus represented nine lives in one.
Others believe the number may have come from China, where the number nine is considered lucky. The number nine — sometimes called “the trinity of trinities” — is also believed to be mystical in many religions and regions around the world.
