From Meditation To Comprehending The Life Through People.
Street photography is not only a meditation now. It has turned into the most important way of expressing myself and comprehending life through people.

BIO | I am Emre Çakmak.
I was born in İzmir, Turkey, in 1996. When I was in remission after a though treatment period, I started photography for meditation helping me to stay in the moment instead of living the past in my mind.
I used to use an analog camera at home. At first, it was joyful, but I get bored with being at home and took a decision that I would try to take street photographs.
After the decision, I bought a digital camera and set out to take street photographs at the end of February 2019.
Since then, I have been trying different styles such as candid street portrait, juxtaposition, filling the frame, storytelling, etc.
Despite different styles I have been using, storytelling is the most appealing and satisfying one because including stories with layers to the photographs looks more meaningful and artistic “to me”.
In conclusion, street photography is not only meditation now.
It has turned into the most important way of expressing myself and comprehending life through people.
