Stay Moncher invites Murat Kahya: By using the art of photography, I choose to convey my lifestyle, the environment and the people to the audience/viewers. I create stories by taking instant snaps of the situations, people and the city in details or through long-term work on a specific subject. I like to work on the technique which would express the situation in the best possible way. I prefer to show the cohesion in the stories that I work on by bringing together the details, people and spaces. http://cargocollective.com/muratkahya
