Speaking of the photo exhibition "Local Arts" Gazi Yüksel said "If we compare the earth to a large canvas, the views that nature creates on this canvas with their own instruments are astonishing and admirable. It is possible to observe the details created by small touches, such as an installation work of nature when viewed from the height of a man. The exhibition includes photographic testimony of these details, which I describe as a work of art created by the nature itself..."
