Call me Ci. I tell stories about my city.


I’m an Istanbulite photographer (b. 1986) who is focused on telling social documentary and personal stories about İstanbul.

I was once a photojournalist, then I decided to make pictures for myself. For inspiration, I enjoy looking at paintings and listening to horror stories.

Currently, as of November 2021, I’m working on my photobook project Unutursan Darılmam (I Won't Be Sad If You Forget Me, 2019 - Ongoing).

I post on my Instagram almost daily and share selected photographs. My camera is Fujifilm X100F and I always use flash.

I am an affiliate of PLATFORM by GAPO.
