I document the stories of people in places, and my own everyday experiences with my "Totem people" characters. These drawings are from my sketchbooks and portraits of people and experiences that have impacted me. The first image is a recreation of the night of the 6.8 earthquake in west coast Turkey this summer, that forced us to sleep outdoors and shook our world from the ground beneath us. When i document, I let my tools ground me while try to fully immerse myself in other people's words and actions, recording what's there physically and with regards to energy. I try to grasp their reality, attend to things they attend.
