Kerim Aytac was born in Istanbul in 1979 and is living and working in London, England. He is currently making work and teaching Film and Media Studies. After falling in love with film he found photography could be a more creative outlet. His love for film can still be seen in some of his images and also his fascination with the urban landscape and street photography.
“I have been drawn to the idea of absence. My earliest projects were clearly influenced by the ‘decisive moment’ philosophy of street photography, but I had already developed a fascination with the traces of the urban landscape that reflect a human presence, rather than the presence itself.” He said about his work. He also references his work as minimalist, mysterious and cinematic.
All of his works that I have found are black and white images with nods to his love for film, I cannot tell if they are digital images or film. His work is simple, clean and formal and often focuses on the sense of absence or presence.
