If it had not been for my passion for photography, I would not be sitting down to write this text about my TEDx Talk in Mannheim. Let me tell you my story of growing up in deeply conservative Turkey and moving to Berlin. Be excited for my challenging ideas of gender, sexuality, and identity from a multicultural point of view. I never let anyone or anything stop me. Without my passion for analog photography, I would not have known the life that I do in Germany, where I get to do what I love the most: being a photographer.
Young photographer Eylül Aslan, currently living in Berlin, knows what makes a photograph unique. Working in analog photography, Aslan has found her passion in photographic portrayals of women and femininity, animated especially by her experience of Turkish society.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
