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.

The winners of the Syngenta Photography Award 2015 have been announced. In response to this year’s theme of “Scarcity-Waste” VII’s Stefano De Luigi submitted his work on the drought in Kenya, and received third prize in the Open Competition.

“Scarcity-Waste is the second edition of the Syngenta Photography Award. In a world of limited resources, scarcity and waste have become fundamental social, political and environmental issues of our time. In the past 50 years, the world’s demand for natural resources has doubled. If we continue to use resources and generate waste at the current rate, by 2030 we will need the equivalent of two planets. But we only have one. Something needs to change.”

An exhibition of the winners’ work is on view through April 10, 2015 at the Somerset House in London.
