Majed Veysel is an artist and photographer who was born and raised in Syria. He studied at the American School in Aleppo, before moving to Istanbul where he obtained a degree in Architecture, and started practicing there as an architect. He is well-known for his strong penchant towards black and white photography, especially with his project that consisted of travelling to 10 different cities, among which Bologna, Milan, Florence, Turin, Genoa, Venice, Istanbul, Grenoble, Lyon, and Aleppo. Architecture and photography are deeply intertwined in Veysel’s art, and the monochrome effects bring a subtle depth and emotion that create a whole new dimension with the same shot. In other words, the absence of colours brings a presence of new possibilities, from interpretation, to the expansion of the watcher’s imagination.
