  • Creator: Delhi Photo Festival 2015
  • Photographer: Arjen Zwart
  • About the Photographer: I am a self taught photographer, working as a freelance photographer. I photograph whatever I come across in my daily walks: street scenes, public gatherings, solitary meanderers, or deserted land and cityscapes. It is extremely important for me to stay connected to my personal projects. I am the co-creator of Dog Food, a magazine based on the philosophy of the Cynics for photographers, which also organises symposiums for the local photographic community. I am also a guest teacher at the Galata photography school in Istanbul.
