  • I use photography as a tool to investigate the distinguishing line between the real and unreal. What fascinates me is the simplicity and details to which we do not pay attention. Considering our everyday life as the best material to explore a topic, I keep recording moments and places that may be easily omitted in the city. Through exaggerating the tiny details, my photographs tend to tell a story: a story which is in between fact and fiction. A scene that appears to be real but no one can be sure how real it is; that uncertainty creates a huge space of blank that allows our imaginations to engage. In this sense, a fact becomes a fiction. My aim, in exposing these fine details, is to raise the viewer's awareness and ability to re-examine our everyday surroundings.
