I began to define my path as “social scientist as a photographer”. During my graduate studies, I learned sociological and ethnographic approaches to photography, and I made use of visuals, visual materials particularly photography in the field of communication sciences. I was working as a research assistant and made the most important discovery of my life: the relationship between photography and social sciences which is more importantly in two main disciplines sociology and anthropology, art as well. Then, I began to consider myself “photography artist as a social scientist”. In this phase, which is my current phase, I realized that reading the visuals is as self-reflexive as producing them and decided to conduct visual ethnographic research by using photography.
