Melis Büyükbaş

Born in 1994 in İzmir, started taking photographs with her grandfather's analog machine, following his footsteps. During the early era of her career, she was photographing objects that could not be intervened she realized that she was doing this by fixing things in frames which are already have been fixed and that changed her point of view. When she started to travel a lot due to his job, she found herself in street photography. While reflecting what is in her photographs as it is, she tries to look from a non-judgmental space by by-passing her own interpretation. She directly reflects people's absurd states, gestures, reactions, feelings and lifestyles. It is possible to see in her photographs that even though they lead different lives, people are alike in their loneliness.
