Istanbul-based photographer Suzan Pektaş operates as a medium between reality and dream. Her photography is a visual exploration of the mundane, the fantastical and everything in between. Be it timeless, black and white street shots, more abstract experiments with movement and light or documentary story-telling, Pektaş’s output is nothing short of prolific and invariably high in quality. For her latest series she focused on a personal story, relating to her own childhood and the time she spent on the Black Sea coast. Shot with the Leica M-P Typ 240, the resulting photographs reveal the multiple cultural layers of the region, with a touch of personal mysticism and spirituality.
