About the team
Turkuaz Street Collective was founded in 2012 by a group of amateur photography enthusiasts led by Alphan Yilmazmaden. The Founding Manifesto also expresses an approach to photography and a vision: In the chaos of the city in which we live, in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, everything falls into place.
The group's goal is to pursue and share moments like these in their unknown and unpredictable. Support each other and improve, make street photography famous in Turkey and become one of the landmarks of Turkish street photography as 'Turkuaz' for friends who hold this point of view. "
The collective, which includes 16 amateur photographers from different cities of Turkey and Azerbaijan, held its first exhibition in the Istanbul Club of Photography and Cinema in January 2020. With the participation of 9 participants took part in the Miami Street Photography Festival (MSPF 2020) as a guest in December 2020.
