Altay Tuz (b. 1993) lives and works in Hamburg. He graduated from the Photography Department of Istanbul’s Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University, and is currently pursuing graduate studies at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste Hamburg. Tuz’s work focuses on tensions between public and private spaces; he probes at notions of borders, lines, barriers and walls, analysing the reflection of this visual grammar on the public architectural texture – and its connection to social class distinction. His works have been exhibited in Turkey, France, Hungary, Bulgaria, Germany and Greece.
