This photo is a work from my "Dark Beauty" project. All of the photographs of this project have been taken in beautiful beaches of Turkey. This photo was taken at the Kefken, a small seaside village of the Black Sea. It is 2 hours from istanbul.
My name is Yucel Basoglu, I was born 04.Nov.1967 in Switzerland. I live in Istanbul/Turkey. I’m interested in photography since childhood time. long exposure and black and white photography was not very popular in my country. So I wasn’t able to do it professionally. I still continue shooting as a amateur photographer. I think black and white photography is the best technique that shows you the purity in human and in nature. On a colour photo of a smiling person for example, you only see the smile. But on a black and white photo you see the reality behind that smile. It’s the same with nature, you see the power of nature on a black and white photo. I see a divine light in black and white photography.. www.yucelbasoglu.com
