ABOUT ME – HAKKIMDA

Welcome to my website!

This website, in the vast world of internet, is a little place of mine in which I freely share my ideas on various topics that I find interesting and worth sharing. At the moment, topics are not focused; they range from photography to free sources of internet. However, it is a reflection of my own background, so it makes sense in itself. I’ve studied philosophy at Boğaziçi University and did my master in Sociology. Meanwhile, I followed my interest in media arts and worked as a freelancer in media production including directing and taking photos for various occasions. I am mostly active on Instagram so you can catch up with me there. I walk around the streets of Istanbul, visit museums, take photos and share them.

There are lots to write on this website; important notes on the books I read, the historical background of the places I visit, inspirational works of artists, truly great sources on the internet that you can utilize from etc. I hope to create time for all of it. Meanwhile, feel free to share your thoughts, criticisms or suggestions under the articles I post..
