The Everyday Projects
Istanbul, İstanbul, Turkey
I am an independent photo and video journalist. From 2002 to 2009 I lived in the United States where I started working as photojournalist. I am a graduate from the photojournalism program of the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York.
From 2010 to 2014 I was based in Lima, Peru. It was an interesting time to be back home. Growing up terrorist attacks and triple digits inflation was everyday news. By the time I returned Peru was undergoing a strong transformation product of its accelerated economic growth. And with it came growing pains. I criss-crossed the country documenting environmental and social issues for news outlets and humanitarian organizations. During this time I also co-founded Everyday Latin America, an Instagram community with the goal of presenting an accurate portrait of the region.
I work as a photographer and videographer for magazines, newspapers and humanitarian organizations. My work has been featured by Catholic News Service, Maclean’s, Quartz, PRI ’s The World, The Guardian, The New York Times, Vocativ, Glamour Magazine, National Geographic Traveler, Catholic Relief Services, Shared Interest, Unicef, World Vision, among others.
