Sevinï¿½liï¿½s images are highly personal, subjective and dreamlike, in which place and time are uncertain, redolent instead of a deeply felt vision of the world. His fleeting images of everyday life have an air of timelessness about them. Aesthetically and formally they manifest Sevinï¿½liï¿½s respect and deep engagement with the history of photography.
