Gökhan Tanrıöver is a Turkish-born photographic artist based in London. Following a brief medical career he dedicates his time to visual culture using both analog and digital photography. Drawing on his training as a junior psychiatrist, his work consists of constructed imagery that focuses on personal and cultural identity, informed by personal experience and memory.
After completing his BA (Hons) Photographic Arts in 2017 at University of Westminster, he has been shortlisted for the Peaches and Cream Photography Competition 2017 and selected as a finalist in the Royal Photographic Society International Photography Exhibition 160. He has taken part in 17 group shows including Separation and Belonging, which he co-curated as part of Whitechapel Gallery’s First Thursdays walking tour in May 2016.
He is currently pursuing his MA Photography at the Royal College of Art and preparing for his debut solo exhibition at Argentea Gallery, Birmingham in May 2018.
