Coşar Kulaksız

The main dilemma of photography is its timidity in depicting an already identified world. Therefore, while photography is perceived as an instrument for documentation in terms of its structure, the ‘reality’ it reflects is what the photographer takes into the frame depending on a particular moment and situation. In other words, the reality in a photograph is like footprints in the snow: It is there, it is observed, but apart from that, what happened before and after should be left to the viewer to follow up on. In the scenes he encounters, Kulaksız pursues not the reality as it is, but the reflection of the reality in his own world. He tries to go beyond the identification and describes what he sees, thus the reality of the world caught in his frame gets rid of the trap of objectivity. The images must then be too shaky to exist outside of what he has captured. Since photography is one of the most important tools of technical development and the industrial revolution, in his artistic production, Kulaksız likes to use this technology during shooting, processing and printing, believing that it opens up new horizons for him.
