The long-term relationship between photography and cinematography is not only based on a formal and technical infrastructure. Thanks to the characteristics they both have, they have been in exchange with each other, both with the effect of the theoretical development of art and with the emergence of contemporary expression forms and the fusion of disciplines. This partnership, which started with the optical and chemical path, later formed an intersection cluster at the level of storytelling, and then the effort to tell this story in a certain sequence brought up the issue of fiction. Editing is not just an element of cinematographic narration. Fiction is an indispensable tool in conveying the narrative of many different forms of expression in art history. Arranging the successive events in a way that creates a whole of meaning not only refines the story to be conveyed, but also makes the thought we want to convey clear and understandable. The logic of editing in the field of cinema and the logic of editing in the field of photography are different from each other. The phenomenon, which can be defined as bringing together the pieces shot differently in cinema, means arranging the scene in photography. However, as mentioned before, in some cases, artists who want to add a new perspective to their narratives by taking advantage of its formal and theoretical qualities by approaching cinematography, also occupy an important place in the history of photography. Artists, who deal with editing in the sense defined by cinema, bring the formal style called "photo-sequence" into their works to present a series of photographs as a meaningful whole. This style allows photography to establish a relationship in terms of fiction, beyond its optical and chemical relationship with cinema. This style, which emerged with the arrangement of successive still photographs to create a new meaning, was deeply influenced by cinematographic editing, not only formally but also theoretically.
