I use the question "What if photography is more about 'listening'?" as a compass to narrate stories. My works are shown in various venues, including Berlin Museum of Photography. My monograph, Come Get Your Honey, was published in summer 2021 by Kehrer Verlag and featured in various media outlets, including HUCK, i-D Italy, GQ, LFI by Leica, Halle4 by Deichtorhallen Hamburg. I live in Berlin.

Samet Durgun (an artist from Turkey, an immigrant in Berlin, Germany) asks, “what if photography is more about ‘listening’?” to narrate stories about communities and individuals with intricate identities, like himself.    Samet studied at Bogazici University, Istanbul, and was recently a guest student at the College of Fine Arts Berlin (UdK). His first monograph, Come Get Your Honey about the queer refugees in Berlin was published in summer 2021 by Kehrer Verlag. So far, the book has been featured in Leica Fotografie International, HUCK, GQ, Camera Austria, LensCulture, GUP Fresh Eyes; and the images have been exhibited in the Berlin Museum of Photography.  ​  He is currently based in Berlin.
