"Growing up straddling cultures, identities, and geographies has lent Erdogan’s collection a compelling narrative, in which his photographs straddle dream and reality, his visions blend abstract with concrete, and his subjects struggle to reconcile the anxiety, loneliness, sensuality, joy, loss, and beauty of their inner and outer worlds. Urban landscapes fluoresce with magic and whimsy. Sun-specked beaches swarm with apocalyptic figures. The vibrant palette of childhood innocence yields to the monochrome of adult stoicism, like a slowing carousel—or perhaps it is adolescence that is monochromatic, or perhaps we are only dreaming in black and white, while true life electrifies with color.
