Instant Photos and Absolute Development

It’s all about the story of looking to a photograph. Neither a memory inside a photo nor its documentary aspects made me interested in this story. The thing for me is just about the current soul presents in a photo and this is what can connect the image to my mind.
There are some experiences in life- regardless to their time and place- the one always carry them in his mind. My instant photos try to represent the notable moments of life; something to invite the audiences to see what the ordinary eye cannot catch.
To me, everything I’ve done on the instant photos, as a manipulation, is such an effort for approximating the photos to my own mental reality. Finally, the series of the present works would never be completed unless I developed them again.
