ARZU SANDAL

She originated her works of photography within a more serious approach during the Northern Aegean trip in 2006 with the encouragement of Faruk Akbaş. Following that, she joined to many other trips leaded by Faruk Akbaş, and having private tutorials. Besides, since her childhood days, she has devoted herself to the art of photography for the reason that her mother was a photographer, as well. In earlier stages, during some the trips, the pictures she had taken only for the purpose of keeping a memory, transformed into a visual record and a passion of storing them. Those works which were shaped as a lifestyle, were a new way of expressing herself from then on.

She became a member of İFOD in 2007. She has been improving with the help of the assitant Prof. Dr. A.Beyhan Özdemir of DEU, Faculty of Fine arts, and at the moment she has been attending to the events taken in İFOD, giving contributions.
