Arzu Aybat Yasar
Istanbul, İstanbul, Turkey
I am a 34 year old documentary photographer, based in Turkey, who mainly focuses on other people’s lives.
I've graduated from Istanbul Technical University and while working as an architect, I did my first documentary serie about seasonal agricultural workers, on 2012.
By the time I was working on different documentary series, I attended to a one-year documentary school in Galata and started my Balo 31 serie in 2014. Now I continue working on different areas in Istanbul and Turkey on different themes as urban transformation, immigration, trans genders, etc.
I use my camera as a key to open other people’s doors. I choose the lives in which I find sincerity and truth.
Now I am doing my masters degree in Marmara University Fine Arts Institute, on Photography. I also teach basics of photography and documentary photography in some courses and private lessons.
