Yener Torun is a minimalist photographer based in Turkey. He studied architecture at Istanbul Technical University. In 2014, he started a photography project on his Instagram account @cimkedi, focusing on lesser known buildings and side streets of Istanbul. In recent years, his international following has exploded, with major media organizations such as The Guardian, The Washington Post, CBS News, El Pais Semanal highlighting his work.
Yener's compositions usually flatten space, emphasizing lines and color over depth. He transforms the urban landscape, reframing architecture as geometric abstraction and creating an alternative reality by detaching architectural elements from their original environment and repurposing them.
