Living and working near Zurich, Switzerland, Ferit Kuyas fully commited himself to photo-graphy in the eighties after graduating from law school. Working mainly on personal projects, he published several books. After visiting Shanghai for commissioned work, Feritís travels brought him often back to China. His most recent book publication is City of Ambition with large cityscapes from the megalopolis Chongqing, China, which got published in October 2009. 2011 he started working on Aurora, a project with cityscapes and portraits in Guatemala City. Feritís photographs have been shown in museums, galleries and festivals in Europe, America and Asia. His work is represented in private, corporate and public collections in the United States, England, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany and Turkey. He received a number of awards, among them the Kodak Photobook-Award and the Hasselblad Masters. ďAmidst the thousands of images we see, there are some that impact on a deep personal level. Itís like they enter your body in some way and reveal themselves to you indreams or come to you at moments in the day when you should be concentrating on the finances, or driving the car. Feritís images affected me in this way. From the first time I saw them, their sheer audacity delighted me. I can meditate on it and take myself on a journey. Even if photography did die, it would never die inside me Ė people like Ferit have filled me up with images forever.ď - Rhonda Wilson, Rhubarb, Rhubarb, Birmingham UK
