Cem Turgay’s works consist of fictional compositions touching the unseen sides of life with artistical approach.
His images are irritative, thought-provoking and protest. Nudity is irrevocable feature of his photographs.
He prefers black & white photography and hard weather conditions (foggy, cloudy, stormy and rainy) since he would like to see more detail in dark & light areas.
Preliminary stage is very important; he writes & draws on the paper what he thinks prior to press the shutter. That process usually takes 6 or 7 hours.
Cinematography of A.Tarkovsky, T.Angelopoulos, B.Tarr and M.Haneke; paintings of F.Bacon & L.Freud are driving force of Cem Turgay’s art.
