By day, Turkish-born Mehmet Ozgur is an engineer working in RF and microwave applications in MEMS and nanotechnology. His fascination with nature led him to pursue photography as a serious hobby. For his Smoke series, he photographed thousands of images of smoke, then reworked them digitally, layering photos on top of one another. The result: surreal figures, abstract scenes and shapes that are easily identified.
"It takes many tangible, and intangible things to put together an original photographic artwork. Obvious tangible elements include camera, lenses, studio, models, computers, software, travel to remote destinations, and long arduous hikes. My inspiration has been to make something completely different than what the camera captures." Mehmet Ozgur tells Environmental Graffiti.Ozgur, who has won several photography awards including the 2006 Popular Photography magazine contest, also has evocative landscape shots like these in his repertoire:
