There is no room for calmness in our accelerating lives these days. It is fair to say that serenity became the victim of our daily lives that is overshadowed by the norms of the modern world. Well, is it not possible for calmness to be a source that enriches and makes life easier?
There sure is a strong bond between people and their experiences in terms of shaping one another. Yet, is it only possible to reach serenity while getting old? I made this series, in which I question finding a practical way of life in serenity, in the Bauhaus school of Dessau. The starting point of the series came with the contrast I wanted to create between the models and the three main colours of Bauhaus that are red, blue and yellow, while bringing out the organic changes of perception that is evident in my work.
Graduating from Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts in 2006, Dağarslanı’s interest in photography piqued by the cinematographic silhouette of the cities he lived in and travelled to during his education. Following his discovery of analogue photography, he began his professional projects in 2010. Simultaneously pursuing architecture and photography, the artist had his various works displayed and published in numerous foreign countries.
Aiming to display his inner world and character in his works, Dağarslanı emphasizes the daylight and natural colours of objects in his subjective perspective.
