Genç Fotoğraf İnisiyatifi (Young Photograph Initiative) is a civil movement which aims to support young photographers and develop the Turkish photograph culture, with artists, scholars, critics and photograph lovers.
Our members, our library, printed books, events and various media take part in achieving that object. Through the photo gallery, we are aiming to provide a good alternative space for many young artists who had not have the opportunity to present their works in that gallery-based art spaces. With the help of that project, young artists will be given the opportunity to reach people from various social backgrounds directly and convey their ideas with their photographs. At the same time, they will be able to finance their further works with the earnings they will get from the sales of editions of their works by the gallery. That financial earning will provide the young photo artists to reach the social level that is necessary for them to continue to produce their artistic works. With the international connections of the gallery they will get the opportunity to present their works abroad and to be recognized with them. Thus they might even get the opportunity to study or work abroad.
