Dark and intriguing are good words to describe the photos by Turkish photographer Hale Çokyürüyen. The opaque monochromatic shots are haunted by loneliness and mystery, presenting gorgeous landscapes where silence and reflection are prominent.
Captured in black and white, Hale Çokyürüyen's images don't need colors to tell enchanting stories about love, dreams and hope. Some of her models appear blurry in the distance, which increases the illusory and ghostly theme carried in most of her photos. This aesthetic also adds incredible beauty and sensuality to her work. In a mixture of long shots and closer ones, these photos use facial expressions and ample corporal movements to emit a strong shot of energy and passion to every pictorial.
Breathtaking and powerful, the art by Hale Çokyürüyen is a solitary dance of sentiments and life.
