Nothing Surprising by Ali Taptik, is the result of a long-term project that was born after the financial crisis of 2008. This publication focuses on concepts of crises and resistance in urban situations, combining images of streets and strangers with interiors and friends, along with public state of being and intimate haunts and desires.
Crisis: the communicable disease of our times. Everywhere, the “XXI’st Century Fox” is in the front pages. “She has the world locked inside a plastic box*”. Opening Pandora’s Box with a click, Ali Taptik dismisses aesthetic conventions.
Doubting the medium, he puts himself in danger, confirming his own language with his new approach of photography. A personal and contemporary
definition, paradoxically closer to what it is in essence: Immobility.
