Cansu Korkmaz was born in Turkey in 1989. After attending Vocational School on Radio, Television and Journalism in 2006, she graduated from Photography and Video Department at Bahcesehir University in 2013.
Since 2012, her works are concentrated on abstract and conceptual photography and art.
In 2013 she created a Tumblr page, named 'Garip Bir enerjin var'. While she was creating this series, she was inspired by George Perec's idea of 'infra-ordinary', which means beauty of the ordinary things with that idea she created a daily small photo series. When the project reached to 200th piece of photo series, she decided to design and print a book. Not to involve publishers in the process and distribute the book back to its right full owners (the streets where the photos were taken), she decided to print the book independently and without a supporter.
With the project, she was a part of several group exhibitions; CULLT Russia- Light is there when we are not, BAU Gallery-Oblivion, ALAN Istanbul-New Photography, UFAT- Signals and systems, YTU-Photography Days.
In 2015 She is the one of the selected artist to work with Arja Hyytiainen, Personal Storytelling workshop in SALT-GALATA. In this workshop she created a project name is “Roses everywhere” and the project was also exhibit in a group exhibition in International Photography Festival-THE LIVES OF OTHERS. While the exhibition still continues, she selected as an artist in a formation name BOOKLAB to make her second book in three days with this lead she creates her second book 'SILENCE'.
In 2016 she opened her first solo exhibition ‘MINI ÇARŞI - MINI MARKET' at the Poligon - the shooting gallery in Istanbul.
After her solo exhibition she decided to move to Buenos Aires and lived there for a year. While her stay she worked with a Norwegian documentarist, who was shooting documentary named OSA. Cansu worked as a director of photography in the documentary.
