Journalist & Photographer Tahir Ozgur was born in 1964 in Turkey. He now lives and works in Amsterdam. Photography began as a work for Tahir to accompany his journalism, however lately it became his passion of life. He photographs people and narrates their stories through his photography. Tahir created a photography-story with his project “Last Nomads Sarikecililer - Migrating to a World of no Tomorrows" and this project was awarded by the 2nd prize in National Geographic International Photography Competition in 2008. He was entitled to Excellence FIAP by Fédération de Internationale deI’Art Photographique in 2010. In International Photography Competition of Hahnemühle, his photography “the mountain villages of Black Sea” was accepted to the collection of Hahnemühle in 2011 and presented in exhibitions such as Photokina in 12 countries.

The artist had 32 personal exhibitions in several countries. He resumes his passion for photography as: “If I can stop tears of a mother through my photography, if my photography make one child laugh, or if I can make a father smile through my photography, if I can stop one leaf to fall, if my photography makes only one person think that it narrates his story, it means that I have started to change the world.”
