"melancholism" - appreciating the beauty of melancholy

Süveyda Halici

„Feelings are the language of our soul. We communicate with others using words but our soul communicates to us through our feelings. Melancholy – the feeling of sadness and calmness in one. A moment of self reflection.“ - Süveyda Halici

The photo series MELANCHOLISM – APPRECIATING THE BEAUTY OF MELANCHOLY by Süveyda Halici folllows a minimalistic approach to depicting her personal emotional journey within herself.

What is a good design for you?

Anything which excites me with its simplicity and beauty.

What was the most challenging experience during your studies?

Term papers and printing Process Books.

Who or what inspires you?

My emotional state.

How do you approach a new project?

If I get a random idea, I have to do it right away. I build an improvised set up and start taking photos and experimenting. One action leads to another and at the end a project is born. :D

What advice would you give to students who just started studying in your programme?

Use the opportunity to take classes from other programs and explore! There is always at least one class which will shape your path.

Have you changed during your studies? How?

I definitely got more self-confident in presentations. Being surrounded by a bunch of creative and inspiring people helped me to understand myself better and work on my weaknesses.

Say hi!
