Savas Boyraz focuses on portrait photography, documentary and fiction narratives. His work straddles the gap between nation state and cultural linguistic entities; he tries to shed light on the overlooked and omitted corners of societies and their history. Intertwining performance, photography and moving image in his works, Boyraz blurs the line between art and political activism.
