Hello, my name is İrem Türkkan.

I was born in 1995, in Istanbul. My photography practice mainly focuses on nature, landscape, and the existence of living things. I also like to create illustrations from my photographs.

I studied Visual Communication Design at Kadir Has University. In 2019, I received my MA in Photography Arts from the University of Westminster. I'm currently working as a Visual Designer in a private company.
