The images by Istanbul photographer Can Dagarslani demonstrate all his love for architecture and urban spaces. However geometric shapes and symmetries are also a pretext by which the photographer analyzes human relationships, fragility, social boundaries and identity.

Speaking of his work, Dagarslani says:

“The search for identity is the point of origin of these series. Mostly two identical and inseparable persons dressed and positioned in the same way, who would seem almost static like dolls. The unusual sensation of synchronized faces staring out at the viewer will entice viewers to initially search for physical similarities before realizing that the two characters are not actually related. So he exposes the similarities and explores the differences of them, through the perception of symmetry..”
