Yalçın Varnalı was born in Adapazarı, Turkey, in 1966. Actually, he lives in İstanbul, in a city sometimes melancholic, but mostly chaotic.
Being focused on long exposure seascapes and landscapes, he tries to find simple, almost minimalistic compositions. He tries to create photographs that leave ample room for the imagination, and a considerable amount of space for the viewer to fill with his or her interpretations.
Since 2007, he is fascinated from the concept of recording ‘consecutive moments’ in time, so from this year, he only makes photographs with ‘long exposure’ technique. His aim is not to capture reality as we all can see or experience and these types of images display surreal scenes in which the eye is unable to see without the aid of such a technique.
