In 2014, Turkish-born Yener Torun (b. 1982) began an Instagram account (@cimkedi) focusing on the lesser-known buildings and side-streets of Istanbul. He studied architecture at Istanbul Technical University and worked as a designer for eight years, which enabled him to develop a vision of structural asymmetry, creating satisfying balance in vibrant compositions. Repetition presents itself as a monumental force: high rises, apartment blocks and resort complexes unfold timelessly before the viewer. On occasion, purposeful figures can be seen permeating the building’s glassy and colour-blocked surfaces, alleviating a sense of stasis. Standing behind closed windows and balconies, characters move beyond domesticity, suggesting psychological introspection and playful intent. Torun’s expansive portfolio, acclaimed for its clean-cut shadows and flourishing forms, has been recognised by publications including The Guardian, The Washington Post and CBS News. www.yenertorun.net.
