It is often to see a daily object in the middle of the composition in Cansu Korkmaz’s pictures. What stands out here is the aesthetic value the daily and insignificant forms add to the photograph. The clutter of forms is deliberately chosen to express the systematic chaos of the city she lives in with a fine aesthetic skill.
Cansu’s pictures are subjective; she expresses her own perception of city and life. What makes this perception special is the aesthetic distance she keeps between the subject and her camera.
Incompleteness is what we commonly face in Cansu’s pictures. The feeling of emptiness in the composition keeps us from a complete satisfaction. Her aim is not to show the perfect, on the contrary, she is more interested in the beauty and balance within the imperfect.
