Archival Pigment Print mounted to plexiglass in artist’s frame We live in a period of photography craze in which I think it is time to “make” photographs instead of “taking” them. That’s the reason I use technology in my “More is Less” series: Some elements of these images are generated (interpolated) by the computer with complex algorithms. In the meantime, I want my photographs to look like “captured moments” from ordinary life and I start from reality choosing arbitrary, ordinary moments and situations, yet manipulate those images during the process by adding or removing things in order to reach a certain clarity and essence.

Born on 1972 in Istanbul, he graduated from Saint Joseph French College in 1991 and attended Marmara University Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Film TV. He won 14 National and International awards with his short films between 1992 and 2002. “Simulacra” (2001) was awarded the “Special Mention” at 24th Clermont Ferrand Short Film Festival’s Digital Competition in 2002. Canikligil has worked as a professional editor, assistant director and finally director in TV commercials. He also has contributed in numerous short films as DOP, editor and attended as member of jury in many national competitions, conducted workshops on short filmmaking and has written essays on the field. In all the while, he constantly and obsessively created photographic images and still does. His works are part of many private collections in Istanbul and New York Following is from Artsy web site: “Photographer and multimedia artist Ilker Canikligil creates partially imagined, digitally manipulated images of cityscapes and the masses. “I want my photographs to look like ‘captured moments’ from ordinary life,” he says, “and I start from reality choosing arbitrary, ordinary moments and situations, yet manipulate those images during the process by adding or removing things in order to reach a certain clarity and essence.” His work emphasizes repetition, ellipsis, hyperrealism, and the minimalist geometries latent in the architecture of the urban environment. Canikligil claims that his work is a part of a project to move beyond “taking” photographs and towards “making” them—an expressive process in which the artist is given greater control over the creation of the image.”
