I'm a self-educated photographer, visual storyteller, and LGBTQ+ activist based in Turkey. I worked with many national and international agencies as a photojournalist. 

Over the years, my focus shifted away from journalistic photography to documentary photography.

As a photographer, I explore social questions and human rights, especially LGBTQ+ rights in the Middle East region. Now I am represented by Redux Pictures Agency, also member of Diversify Photo and Native Agency.
