Işığın Çapraz Geldiği Saat is a zine produced for Galip Project: Ayn-ı Galip, an exhibition organized by Eda Emirdağ at Pasaj to commemorate photojournalist Galip Caner who ended his own life in the year 2000. Having recently received the single remaining box of Galip’s negatives together with a few of his personal items, Emirdağ decided to open up this small archive and invite her artist friends to ponder on this material.

“Işığın Çapraz Geldiği Saat” combines a rewritten version of a poem by Sabahattin Teoman with images selected from Galip’s archive. The original text was found in a collection of poems Galip used to enjoy reading throughout his youth.


The book takes this poem as a puzzle alluding to Galip’s personal history and tries to reframe it by altering the order in which certain words or punctuation marks appear within the textual structure. If all of the pages making this book could be seen at once as layers stacked on top of each other, images and clusters of words would realign and a past meaning or a past condition would be reconstructed.
