  2. Experience the spiritual and social effects in the Hammam (Turkish Bath).

    During my recent visit to Istanbul, I have commited to making a short multimedia photo essay about travel or lifestyle as homework for the Foundry Photoworkshop 2010. After some tinkering, I came up with the idea of documenting the spiritual and social effects of the Turkish Baths a.k.a. Hammams. I made a few visits to the famous historical hammams in Istanbul and after lots of sweat and blood, please find the final product from my hardwork.

  4. This short documentary is a rare behind-the-scenes look at Summer 2013 Gezi Park protests in Istanbul, Turkey.

    In late May 2013, political unrest swept across Turkey. In Istanbul, a large part of the central Beyoğlu district became a battle zone for three consecutive weeks with conflicts continuing afterward. The protests were initially aimed at rescuing Istanbul’s Gezi Park from being demolished as part of a large-scale urban renewal project.

    The police used extreme force during a series of police attacks that began on May 28th 2013 and which came to a dramatic head in the early morning hours of Friday May 31st when police attacked protesters sleeping in the park. As the images of the heavy-handed policing spread across the world, the protests quickly transformed into a popular uprising against the Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and his style of authoritarian rule.

    This short documentary tells the story of the occupation of Gezi Park, the eviction on July 15, 2013, and the protests that have continued in the aftermath. It includes interviews with many participants and footage never before seen.
