Wednesday Whim - Typography & Photography

all images via Visual News via Gokhun Guneyhan

As many of you know, I have a special spot for photography. It's a wonderful form of art and a person can only get better the more he/she practices and uses a camera. But, I also have a special spot for typography. I love all types of lettering and its graphic appeal. As a kid, I was obsessed with calligraphy! It looks so beautiful. So when I came across this Visual News article on Turkey-based artist, Gokhun Guneyhan, it was a match made in heaven! 

Gokhun Guneyhan has taken the photos he took all over Europe and overlaid unique fonts over them to convey a different vibe that coincides with the city's personality. The photos almost feel like film clips to me. They definitely tell a story in each frame. Seeing this series reminds me of how important imagery is to a viewer and how it can set the theme for content.

What do you think? Do you find imagery and typography important? For more of Gokhun Guneyhan's work, check out his Behance page and his Tumblr.


  1. I really love this post, because I'm starting to do the same for my photos (not blog photos obviously, but the photography I do outside of outfit photos lol). I love the typography he adds - it captures the spirit of the location he's at! Just perfectly inspiring <3

  2. Wonderful pictures! I've been to some of the places (Amsterdam, Paris) so these pictures are nice to see.


  3. I definitely find both important and interesting! And I love these examples, they are lovely :)

  4. This just sent my wanderlust into high gear!

  5. Love these! I definitely have a soft spot for typography too!



  6. I love these! the typography is absolutely perfect. What a great post. xx. McKenna Lou

  7. Great blog and nice post! I will be here more often! I'm ur new follower! Don't forget to visit my blog too!

  8. Gorgeous. I love the combination of these as well! I'm trying to get more into photography; I'm intimidated by my camera so I need to just get out there and start practicing. Seeing these motivated me.

  10. Those photos are stunning! I love the typography with it. Funny, I never used to like text on photos because I thought it took away from the photo itself, but I now love the added interest. Just last week I installed an app to be able to add text to my instagram photos.

  11. Love this, never seen it before.

  12. I do like this since I'm such a huge font nerd - someday I'm going to get my rear into gear and purchase a font subscription so I can play with all the funky fonts out there

  13. OH! I love this, especially since a lot of his work that you are showing is in France. I love type + photos, but my old photo teacher hated it. I've always thought it's a great challenge
