Markus Andersen & Elif Suyabatmaz – MIRRORED

Mirrored is an exhibition encompassing both photo-documentary and street photography images of the cities of Sydney and Istanbul.

Between 2011 and 2014, Sydney-based photographer Markus Andersen and Istanbul-based photographer Elif Suyabatmaz responded to each other’s images with their own imagery, full of contrasts, humour and emotions. The work is designed to tell a visual story of daily life in both cities, catching unguarded moments of the people, characteristics and architecture of both cities.

The resulting images reflect both the differences and similarities of the contemporary Turkish and Australian way of life, mirroring one another in both subtle and more obvious ways.

Presented as part of our Emerging Artist Program.
