All way long, the barbed wire entanglements stop anybody to enter the buildings that are not safe. These wires also keep both community soldiers away from each other to prevent any kind of problems along the Buffer Zone.

I was born in Nicosia, Cyprus in 1966 and graduated from department of Engineering Sciences in METU in Ankara and MBA in EMU in Cyprus. I took courses on Graphic Design in Kensington and Chelsea College and Photography in Central Saint Martins College.

Because of my intense interest on diverse cultures and social issues, my photographs are mostly on people, life, travel and cultures. I took part in two group exhibitions in London after attending the ‘Vehbi Koca Photography Workshops’ between 2006-2007. In 2010 I participated in ‘How Much’ Contemporary Art Exhibition in Nicosia. I partook in the ‘Futureless Lives’ group photography exhibition in Turkey and Cyprus showing the life of the Palestinians in Palestinian Refugee Camps of Lebanon. I represented northern part of Cyprus in Bashkortostan Photographers Meeting. I have been chosen ‘The best Photographer of the Year’ in 2014. I took part in many national and international group exhibitions. My documentary ‘The Years in Between’ have been chosen to be screened in 2. Documentary Photography Days in Istanbul, Turkey in 2015.

I had my first personal exhibition ‘Exotic Morocco’ with Buket Ozatay in 2014. I have been awarded many times in national and international competitions. I continue my education on ‘Photography and Cinema’ in Anadolu University.
