Eren Sarigul is a self-taught photographer and filmmaker specializing in travel, lifestyle and city photography. Eren’s inspiration behind the lens has been shaped by being both a proud Londoner and Istanbulite. His passion for photography began in 2015 with his first visit to Japan, where he instantly fell in love with the country’s geography, cultures, and people. He continued to shoot upon his return home, seeing his life in London through a new lens.
Eren tries not to overthink a scene or composition, preferring to snap freely in the moment and review later. He is happiest when conversations about his work shift between photography and traveling, reveling in the connection and fueling his desire to continue his travel adventures and his everyday escapades in London.
“To stay inspired, I have a rule: at least once every three months, I travel to somewhere new for a few days. As a result, each time I return to London I return with renewed focus and energy.”
Eren’s work is featured in Across Japan, the seventh installment in Trope Edition’s Emerging Photographer series, which chronicles his journeys through the country that has fascinated him since he was a boy. His work has also been published in the Trope City Editions volumes Trope London and Trope Tokyo.
