My name is Eylül, which means September in Turkish. I am 23 years old and I am living in Berlin.
How did you discover photography and what makes you keep on doing it?
I started experimenting with my mother's old camera ( which is still my favorite camera and I always use it ) and then I realized how much it makes me happy to be taking photos so since then I have not stopped.
What do you want to show through your pictures?
I think I really enjoy focusing on women and their femininity in order to talk about the social and political oppression of women in cultures like the Turkish culture. I also enjoy telling stories, every photo has kind of a little story of its own and it is fun to let people think what the story could be.
Which artist would you like to work with?Right now it would be a dream come true to have a photo shoot with the actresses of the sensational movie 'Blue is the warmest color' .
I do not spend that much time online…But I love www.booooooom.com
I enjoy traveling, but I do photography professionally so I would not call it my hobby anyway :)
What do you expect from your photographic future?I have published my first book, Trauerweide (editionsdulic.com/products/trauerweide ) last year and I would like to publish another book this year. Also I might have my first solo exhibition either in Istanbul or Berlin.
