- What’s On
In his fourth solo show at x-ist, the acclaimed photographer Ahmet Polat will present his series ‘Imagine Istanbul’, which was exhibited at BOZAR Brussels within the scope of the Europalia Art Festival. The featured photographs analyse and focus on Istanbul, specifically its social dynamics and the identities of the city’s population. Many of the photographs are portraits, which are common in Polat’s portfolio – not only do they serve as a record of Istanbul’s present, but they also explore the representative power of photography in different cultures.
Polat, who is based in Istanbul and Holland, has made a name for himself in the world of photography through his artistic works, as well as his commercial and fashion photography.
