The material Şehitoğlu uses in his recent productions is cheap visuals obtained via the internet and Google tools that are used by many artists.

These works, which both redefine the boundaries of photography and question the limits of the concept of privacy in a world dominated by control systems, can be considered as an exercise to look at current subjects and tools.
