The Power and Influence of Images…

Images can express more than words, they can influence, make you think and aware of trivial things – they have an impact on you.

Recently, I have followed one of my favourite photographer’s work on a new exhibition called “Underwater Suicides” – sounds morbid? It does, but knowing the story and concept behind this title, it all makes sense! I am talking about Mehmet Turgut, a professional photographer from Ankara, Turkey.

The aim of this exhibition is to become aware of what we are actually doing – according to Mehmet Turgut, we are unconsciously committing suicide by polluting our environment and that we need to stop.  This wake-up call, expressed in strong images, is a brilliant example of bridging between a societal challenge and visual culture. Not only is his work inspiring but it also gives me food for thought. What about you?

The exhibition “Underwater Suicides” – curated by Ayşegül Dinçkök, İpek Sorak as art director and Umut Eker as fashion editor and professional diver Selin Beşkardeş Öztunalı as model – can be visited from the 27th of September until the 4th of October 2012 in Hasköy Yün İplik Fabrikası, Istanbul – so if you happen to be in Istanbul around that time, do not miss out on this!

You can find more info about this exhibition by simply clicking on the poster above (info is in Turkish only!).

And because images are stronger than words – here is a Behind the Scenes video from the photo shoot:
