Approximately there are about 20.000 - 80.000 Turks of African descent living in Muğla, Ula, Köyceğiz, Arcata, and Dalaman regions. Black people have for long culturally adapted Turkish society, and as a consequence, there is almost nothing that indicates an African heritage in a cultural sense. As a result of the search for their roots, activists revived certain ancestral ceremonies and African traditions. And the search goes on.
I am a photographer based in Berlin, Germany. I was born 1993 in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Germany. I studied Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at HS Hanover and Photography at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK), Ghent.
Due to my family's migration history, I mainly deal with diaspora, belonging, and identity in my work. For each project, I look for a suitable visual language and appropriate, respectful forms of representation.
Feel free to say hello at any time.
