The Closest Possibility

Cemil Batur Gökçeer

May 8, 2014 – June 14, 2014

The Empire Project, Defterdar Yokuşu No 35, Cihangir, Istanbul


The first solo exhibition in Istanbul of the young Ankara-born photographer Cemil Batur Gökçeer.

Nominated for the Paul Huf Award (Amsterdam Photography Museum Foam) and selected as one of the most promising emerging photographs by the British Journal of Photography in 2014, Gökçeer makes his Istanbul debut with a variety of works produced in the last three years – a result of intensive experimentation between technique, medium and format. The resulting works are abstract-like compositions that are far from realism and are beautifully surreal.

Gokçeer says of the selected works: ‘I have been searching for a new semantic connection emerging from my interaction with certain moments and spaces. Therefore I have developed these photographs with interventions triggered by the thoughts or emotions connected to the moment they were shot.’

Prices range from TL400 to TL5,000 + VAT.
