I backpack and travel the world;
 I take photos and tell human stories.
“My Kaaba is HUMAN” is a project inspired by the Alevi / Bektashi philosophy, founded in Anatolia during the 13th century. It focuses on the idea of the unity of ‘’God, cosmos and human’’ and aims to put this into practice. According to this understanding, what we are looking for is not far away but in person himself. Because the greatest book to read is “the human being”.

With this aim, I meet with people around the world and tell the stories of them. Because, when we know about the story of the people who are on the other side of the world, we become aware of our similarities. Thus, we all continue the way. By knowing we are not alone. Because somewhere in the world there is someone who shares your feelings, your fears, your worries, your dreams, your happiness and sadness. And their story is actually your story.
Because we are more similar than we think, we are more connected than we can imagine. 
The stories are being published by Biamag ( in Turkey) and by Buala (in Portugal).
The project is preparing to be a book.
