About Me

Filmmaker / Photographer

Eliya Akbaş

I am a French/Turkish photographer and filmmaker who currently lives in Barcelona.

I grew up in Paris, studied filmmaking and graduated in cinematography. In 2011, I moved to New York. I directed a short film who got selected for international festivals and I worked on Holocaust documentaries.

My work focus on portrait photography. My aim is to create a specific mood where the audience can imagine a story. I am fascinate by the truth and mystery. I want to bring to light a deep emotion that will show someone’s soul.
