“I believe in being multidisciplinary. I think engineering, design and photography have similar approaches. At the heart of all of them lies the ability to solve a problem and bring it to life in a more aesthetic and functional way. As a photographer with an engineer approach, I think we get inspiration from the problems in life.” Tuncsel Ulku
