Germen’s work portrays the landscape of the New Turkey by documenting the cause-and-effect relationships of cultural, economic and social factors. Therefore, factories, construction sites and refineries symbolize economic dynamics, which in turn have social and cultural effects.

Cultural identity — despite global forces in art — remains an important factor in contemporary art.

Even in the presence of rapid communications and cross-cultural exchanges, local phenomena define a culture and help us see more deeply within and beyond the dynamism of a rapidly changing culture like Turkey’s. Murat Germen’s photography interprets this dynamic culture.

In contemporary Istanbul, Germen deciphers what stands before his eyes in the present tense. The bridge between East and West and a point of interest for centuries, Istanbul offers Germen a wealth of localities that he interprets with a fresh eye. (from theglobalist.com)
