The use of black and white vintage photographs with the visuals of nature creates very interesting vibe of clashing images that present catchy stories behind. As the talented author of these collages, MERVE ÖZASLAN, believes herself that we are the part of the nature. She puts a question mark in the presentation of those collages whether urbanization and mechanization is in our favour or against us – humanity vs technology. We become detached from the nature with all the improvements of the modern world. That is why  Özaslan merges the innocence in vantage photos together with the beauty of the nature presented in precise cuts.
