Secret Dreams – Portraits by Ebru Sidar
I have long been a fan of Ebru Sidar, having found her photography page on deviantART several years ago. Her portraits are mesmerizing, and showed me how creative one can be with the camera. Ebru’s landscape work is equally as powerful and talented, and her unique ability is evident in both areas – to present a dreamlike, entrancing environment here in the physical world.
Ebru’s work is described below:
“Ebru Sidar was born on 13 January 1975 in Trabzon. Since her parents were bankers, she traveled to many cities in Turkey and then moved to Ankara where she is still living. She graduated from Ankara University as a Geology Engineer.
She thinks that all types of art affect and are connected to each other. Capturing “the good” in thoughts and the physical world, she believes that any work on which someone focuses mentally, emotionally and physically is meant to be good.
Considering photography as a common property and language of humanity, she believes that it should always promote and contribute to sustainable peace. She has been actively working on photography since February 2005. While continuously developing her skills and knowledge, she never wants to give up her amateur spirit.”
