As a young creative soul on the search for an artistic means of expression, Sadik Aydin landed a most interesting and unexpected internship as an antique box carver in Istanbul Turkey. These jewellery boxes, each an ornate work of art, were created after hours of intricate handwork and much attention to finite detail. His talent was soon recognized and Sadik was approached to be trained as a goldsmith where he worked/turned 24 carat gold and diamonds into exquisite pieces of jewellery.
After being given a camera as a gift before a trip to Mexico, he started taking random snaps of anything he viewed as beautiful. This habit turned into love where he continually found himself yearning to capture beauty in every possible instant of his journey.
Each photograph is a reflection of that intangible moment when his soul merges with the beauty in front of him. His work spans from scenes of the most ordinary places like urban city centres to the rich colours and textures of the Costa Rican rainforest. He is fascinated with how light affects the landscape to create the magic that is mother nature.
