Presentation of the exhibition Oculus by Galerist, Istanbul :
"Galerist is proud to present Oculus, a series of photographs taken mostly in France and Turkey and taking its title from an old Roman architectural term for a small circular or oval window. Often an oculus allows a concentrated beam of light into an otherwise dark interior and so is a threshold between a world of light and one of shadow.
In Sevinçli’s images we are in a shadow-world in which light, meaning and beauty pass fleetingly, out of reach and into memory.
There is a beautiful, poetic intelligence in Yusuf Sevinçli’s photographs. They are, we are told, images of actual things and places. The artist’s sensibility, however, articulated through the elegant contingencies of the analogue photographic process; the framing of the shot, the manipulation of the negative, the quality of the printing, renders a dreamlike reality. "
This book is co-published by Galerist and Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire, the two galleries representing Yusuf Sevinçli, respectively in Istanbul and Paris. Design by Valentina Abenavoli (AKina Books / Akina Factory).
The Oculus series has been on display in December 2017 and January 2018 at Galerist, Istanbul and in February / March 2018 at the gallery of Le Botanique in Brussels.
NB : All copies of Oculus have a small transludi "security" sticker (mandatory in Turkey) on the back cover , that should not be removed because of a risk of damaging the bookcover's paper.
