My name is Seyfettin Dincturk. I was born in Manisa (Turkey). After my high school, I moved to Izmir and lived there a couple of years. Then I moved to Istanbul. After that I started to study in Slavonski Brod then Edirne, then Ljubljana and now I’m in Zadar (Croatia). When I was a child, I had a polaroid camera. So my curiousity about photography started back then. In 2011 I bought my first DSLR camera. I tried to take some photos. And here I am. I’m studying Croatian Language and Literature. It’s my last year.

Upcoming projects;

-Weekend at Monastery in Croatia

-Galician Fishers

-Photobook project on indiegogo.com;

Children of ?stanbul



book demo and more information about project and donate/buy will be there soon.


I have 3 goals right now about photography. Owning Leica M with a proper lens, publish my photobook and travelling and taking millions of street photos.

  1. Seyfettin….The photo of Ramazan is captivating and the various black and white building photos superb! I just took a quick look at your work and am so impressed. Beautiful. You are extremely talented. I love to write and have written several short stories on my blog but have also become obsessed with these photo challenges as I love the creativity though I am not strong in craft/technique! There was a photographer called Diane Arbus who was famous for photographs of strange but brutally real people many in New York City. She was known for taking photos of the dark side a little bit but all are captivating. Are you familiar with her work? If not, look her up. Thank you for visiting my blog and have a nice evening!

    1. Hello Kathy! Thanks a lot for your opinion. I’m really honored. I’m so glad that you like my work and you think that i’m talented! I really try my best with my humble work. Now I checked Diane Arbus, really nice photos. I like it a lot. One of my photography dream is going to New York. Have a nice day!! Thanks again!
