Yasemin Güney Erten
Photographer / Artist

Yasemin Güney Erten (Istanbul, 1999) lives and creates between Istanbul and Paris. She completed her undergraduate education at Sorbonne University Paris 1 Panthéon, respectively majoring in both Visual Arts and Philosophy of art. While she pursues her education at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Decoratifs alongside a Master’s degree in Philosophy of Art, she continues to work on the human condition through photography, drawings, objects, and installations as part of her multidisciplinary practice.

While she is mainly driven by the human condition and the human experience, rather than presenting humans as subjects, she chooses to document where we live and the traces we leave behind.

She thinks that perhaps taking photographs could be considered as a theft of the present, which will become the past with the next second to come. She continues to steal and keep moments ever since she got her first camera as a gift from her father at the age of seven.

  • Dorothy Sing Zhang: Like Someone Alive
    Publication
    Art Paper Editions / APE
    International
    Dorothy Sing Zhang unveils a compelling portrayal of humanity’s vulnerable state during sleep. The scene is set in the bedrooms of others. One is asked to be asleep, a squeeze cable release is placed under the pillow. The chance of one’s unconscious body rolling over and triggering the camera results in an exposure. Like Someone Alive expands these boundaries by withdrawing the traditional relationships between the photographer, the object and the camera. (more…)
  • Lars Harmsen: Collision
    Publication
    Slanted
    International
    Collision by Lars Harmsen is the collision of intuition and the human experience. A visual journey of photographs, design, and ideas. With this publication, the author mercilessly settles accounts with the last 10 years of his creative work. Numerous pieces and creations, from Slanted, PosterRex and 100for10 to freelance works and other projects have been destroyed, cut up and reassembled. A maximum of carnage. With a minimum of diplomacy. (more…)
