I am Hasan Hüseyin Birlik, I am 31 years old and I live in Van province in eastern Turkey. I work as a Geological Engineer in a public institution. I love traveling and getting to know new cultures.

I started taking photos in 2013. In the first years, I was taking photos without any discrimination of subject, light and space. However, I was interested in the field of documentary photography because I thought that real photography should have traces from a current story and show them in the future.

I have used many different pieces of equipment in the past time. A little enthusiasm, a little love for technology. However, due to the huge load of equipment over time, I am careful to use a smaller size and lighter cameras. That’s why I use Fujifilm X-series cameras. In recent years I have been using the Fujifilm X-T2, X-T3, X-H1 and X100F models.

I used them with different type of lenses, and each of them gives a separate effect to the photo due to its features. However, the photos I take close to the subject affect me more. That’s why I like taking pictures with a 23mm (35mm FF) lens.
