At the time making my first photograph, I understood that I was interested in making portraits. I have always chosen feminine individuals as my subject, trying to understand their secrets.

In all of my works, you see all feminine portraits. Looking at all my pieces until now, I can talk about the total experience inside women. I understand their feelings, anxieties, relationships and gestures. In my entire archive of photographs, I can find out this central idea of introspection. It is like a research of a common language that can go beyond our differences. With my photo series, I want to convey this idea of ​​strength, vulnerability and gestures in a feminine way.
