聚焦摄影师,Suzan PEKTAS,土耳其伊斯坦布尔

虽然我记得自童年以来我一直对光和它的俏皮感着迷,但直到2013年我才开始将我生活中的大部分时间用于摄影。从那时起,我一直在伊斯坦布尔等市中心的大城市拍摄,这些城市周围的人们都在躲避城市生活的喧嚣,以及东安纳托利亚等偏远地区。我不断探索以人为中心的不同形式和视觉表达,并将自己置于艺术和纪实的十字路口。大多数情况下,我的好奇心是关于人们和他们看不见的故事,以及在他们自己的内心世界中迷失的人物。与我的主体的情感层面建立联系,挖掘它们的强度以及它们塑造我们的深度,这就是摄影对我而言的意义。

Though I remember having been fascinated with light and its playfullness since my early childhood, it was not until 2013 that I started to devote a major part of my life to photography. Since then, I have been shooting in downtown megacities, such as Istanbul, the hide-outs around the cities where people take shelter from the exhaustive rythm of urban life, as well as remote areas such as Eastern Anatolia. I continously explore different formats and visual expressions on a human centric ground and position myself at crossroad of art and documentary. Mostly, I am driven by my curiosity about the people and their unseen stories, the characters that are lost in their own inner worlds. Creating a connection to my subjects’ emotional layers, unearthing how intense they are and how deeply they shape us, this is what photography is for me. My desire to document comes out of such a natural will.
