VOICE OF COLOURS
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the past few years have not been easy. Despite the uncertainties and fears of the moment, there are those who have managed to make the best out of the situation and express their emotions in higher forms. This is the case of Emre Çakmak, a Turkish photographer, who did not sit still and used the time available to devote himself to his passion. In his project “Voice of Colours”, Emre chronicles scenes from his life during the pandemic, inspired by the magic of light and colour.
Emre believes that photography is a very important form of expression and documentation and, as a result of this deep emotional research, several photographs have emerged. The images are scattered, they do not proceed in a straight line but represent a succession of spontaneous sensations of the moment.
Emre Çakmak was born in Izmir, Turkey, in 1996. He used to live in Izmir until his graduation from Maltepe Military High School in 2015. Now, he lives in Ankara, Turkey, and studies English Language Teaching at Gazi University.
Since 2019, he has been interested in street and documentary photography. He has been selected as a winner and a finalist in several international photography contests and festivals. He believes that this art form can turn into a strong expression way and works hard for this, always trying to improve day after day.
