Works

The experience of seeing the world under the sea when I went scuba-diving made me become aware of life and death.
The beautiful world under the water, which is interwoven with light and various life forms, at the same time unveils our fear of death.
Our attachment to life is revealed by being deprived of the crucial ability to breathe.
The BREATH series expresses life and beauty of humans that is exposed in a back-to-back situation with death.
