“HIATUS” – a pause in life’s chaos, is the focus of Kartal Karagedik’s exhibition. He represents life’s rhythm through repeated geometrical shapes, whilst the human figures in his photos invite their viewers to find stillness and pause the relentless march of time. ”

“Photography, much like music, is a magical communication medium for me. It allows me to share how I perceive the world. I draw inspiration from the interplay of contrast and purity in light and shadows, the depth of human emotions, and the overall shape and composition…

This unique perspective inspires both my photography and singing. When I photograph, I approach it as if I were singing it, and when I sing, it’s as though I’m capturing a scene through a lens.”
