‘Visuallity is my predominant side… I have been used photo language and I love this phrase. Maybe it does not contain letters, brushes and hammer blows but it has a scene and fiction in its own world… Neither nature nor people; has a integrity and continuity formed by a continuous chain. Everything is aimed to understand the whole. Life and death which described at the same time in my bipolar photography is a example of my hybrid expression.’
