ABOUT THE WORK

Life flows over time and space.
World where lights and shadows exist.
I photograph light in a certain moment of our daily life.
I capture the light by giving some time in order to accept shadows.
My work is about harmony of lights and shadows.

Light in the City - BW
 Light in the City in BW series is a one-time project. As I continued my photography journey, my interest shifted to shapes created by sunlight reflecting on architecture buildings and urban nature such as trees. For this series, I took three basic approach, shooting in the morning, shooting with a standard smartphone camera in monochrome, and keep the same angle, which is looking-up angle. Filter I applied was noir filter in the standard camera app and that was to exaggerate the strong contrast. Shooting from looking-up angle creates triangle or trapezoid shapes which may give impressions such as durability, stability, trust, consistency, perpetuity, as well as self-control. I chose monochrome colour because I believe it helps viewer see the essence of light than in colour. In this series, shape created by sunlight and architecture is my subject.
