TURAL RAHMANLI SOLO EXHIBITION "ON MY WAY"
The Baku Street Photography Festival presents On My Way, a personal exhibition by a young photographer Tural Rahmanli. The exhibition area includes shots taken by the author in Turkey, Ukraine, and Azerbaijan. On My Way is the first personal exhibition of the artist in Azerbaijan.
Tural Rahmanli is one of those rare photographers working in the genre of street photography. His works are noticeable for their unusual angle; the photographer seems to introduce objects to the viewer by shooting them at a close distance and making them a unique phenomenon in street photography. The author invites the audience to take a closer look at human problems while seeing a kind of beauty and aesthetics in them.
“Back in my university days, I just fell in love with photography. I bought my first camera when I got a job. I always noticed interesting details, people, and chiaroscuro figures on the way to work. I wanted to shoot, but I could only take pictures in snatches because I had to get to my work in time. The shots that you see were created while working in different countries”, Tural tells about himself.
Tural Rahmanli (b. 1992, Azerbaijan) began his photographic career when he moved to Turkey in 2013. He received a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the Bahçeşehir University. In 2016, he joined Turkuaz Street Photographers Group.
Tural Rahmanli has participated in many exhibitions and festivals around the world. He considers photography as a “lifetime project”. He is the author of projects such as “East”, “Charshi”, “Istanblues”, “Ukraine”. Tural currently lives and works in Azerbaijan.
The curator of the exhibition is Khalid Zeynalov
