TIMELESS CITY ISTANBUL & FACES
Exhibition of photographs of the Turkish artist will be on display in the Gallery of Czech Centres from February 3 to 25, 2017.
The city that has been carrying the wisdom of hundreds of years, timeless city of Istanbul… The project is the result of 9 years of work and intends to reflect the atmosphere of the unique story of Istanbul – the city that has been home to many cultures for centuries, although its majestic silhouette remained unchanged forever.
The key element of the project is focusing on emotional value of the images, keeping the sense of time apart.
Rather than presenting modern looks of Istanbul, this series of photos focuses on back streets of the city, its historical quarters and melancholic trait, paying tribute to its inhabitants as well, with their portraits.
Having graduated from Eastern Mediterranean University in Northern Cyprus with diploma in Industrial Engineering, he returned to his home city of Istanbul, where he currently lives and continues creating his photographic essays. He first got introduced with photography in 2006. In time, his interest became ever-growing passion of his life.
In his work, the artist prioritizes composition, the story that he aims to tell, emotional value of the image and its aesthetic qualities.
For Mustafa Dedeoğlu, style in photography is first of all reflection of the artist's personality and philosophy in each and every photo he takes, rather than series of similar photos taken with same technique.
Mustafa Dedeoğlu's works are published in various local and foreign reviews of art. The artist also shares his photographs through exhibitions.
Mustafa Dedeoğlu has been displaying his works in Russia, Spain, Serbia, Qatar, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Greece, USA, Romania, Lithuania, Iran, Poland and France.
