1/1 30 Lesser-known Colorful building photographs will be minted to this collection.

I was born in Turhal, Turkey in 1982 and I am currently residing in Istanbul. I studied architecture at Istanbul Technical University. In 2014, I started a photography project on my Instagram account @cimkedi, focusing on lesser-known buildings and side-streets of my adopted city. In recent years, my international following has erupted with major media institutions, such as The Guardian, The Washington Post, CBS News, El Pais Semanal highlighting my work.

My compositions usually flatten space, emphasizing line and color over depth. I transform the urban landscape, reframing architecture as geometric abstraction and creates an alternative reality by abstracting architectural elements from their original environment and repurposing them.
