The Other Side of the Visible, 2023
The single image delves into the intricate connection between nature and humanity. Captured at Azmak River in Akyaka, this photograph highlights the contrast between the internal and external realms of human existence. Much like this river, humans craft two distinct worlds for themselves, and both are inherent to their identity. The photograph, which leaves us questioning whether it was shot from beneath the water’s surface or from an external perspective, seeks to establish a connection with every facet of human experience. In doing so, it underscores the continuous cycle of neglecting self-awareness within the embrace of nature.
