The Only Thing Worth Having

The Only Thing Worth Having

Sera Akyazici

started photography at age 15, when her grandfather handed Sera her first analog camera: a Kodak Retinette 1A. Going to Old Town in Istanbul almost every Sunday, she self-taught photography by focusing on candid imagery. In her words: "In parallel with Roland Barthes’s The Death of the Author, I am un/consciously trying to eliminate the importance of the photographer in my images." Completing her BA in Art History and Gender Studies, followed by her MA in Cultural Analysis in Amsterdam and Tokyo, Sera does not like to call herself a photographer. Currently based in Berlin, she continues to use her camera as a tool for observation to create her own memory palace.
