Cihan Bektas. Staged recreations of my love’s world (schizophrenia), to show her how I can see her when she’s in a different world.
The images of this project are staged recreations of my love’s world (schizophrenia). The series aims to show her how I can see her when she’s in a different world. I photographed her with the intention of an impersonal personality. This is not only because I wanted to take images that mimic visual memory, but I also wanted the photos to be accessible to the viewer. While photographing with polaroid film, it had the effect of not thinking about freezing and being suspicious that it would be the only one before it disappeared.
My name is Cihan and I am an award-winning senior photographer and visual artist with more than thirteen years in my belt. I am based in Melbourne and work in large and medium format photography and am also interested in aerial photography. My projects are inspired by nature and animals, full of passion and storytelling.
