About Furkan Temir

Furkan Temir is a self-taught photographer and artist born in 1995 in a small town in Eastern Turkey. After spending his childhood and adolescence in his town, he earned a scholarship for the Department of Cinema in State University and moved to Istanbul. By that time, he had developed an interest in photojournalism and traveled many times across Turkey and abroad for his projects. He combines different techniques of painting, video, photography, and installation to create works focused on minorities in the Middle East.

Temir’s photos have been published in The New York Times, TIME, CNN Photo Blog, Stern, Paris Match and The Guardian. He also had solo and group exhibitions in Germany, Italy, France, and Turkey. He lives in Istanbul.
