Kağan Güner

kağan-güner.... Kağan Güner is a Turkish artist(painter, sculptor and illustrator of children’s books) who died in 2011.I wish I had an opportunity to meet him in person.According to all the articles I’ve read about him,he was a great person,besides being a great artist.His friends called him “revolutionary with smiling eyes”….

Therese Raquin

thereseraquin
Emile Zola’s exquisite melodramatic novel,as you know :)That is another book I’ve read approximately a decade ago and still haunts,in every way…

Then the story begins…


Depressed

depressed.
depressed.

inspired from Dostoyevsky’s great novel “the double”.Probabyly I’ve read it more than a decade ago,and still amazed by Dostoyevsky’s amazing portrayal of the character… Reference photo is :http://www.fotocommunity.com/pc/pc/cat/3405/display/33580931

Anyway,this is my interpretation (that great photo helped a lot) escapism from modern society and nostalgia towards past times in some darkest moments…
