The artist

An American born in Turkey, Akif Hakan Celebi dedicated himself to photography from 2004 onwards, after having started a promising career in the television world. Creating ties between art, fashion, film, and the media, he composes cinematographic images whose colourful, sensual, and expressionistic sets sublimate his female models. Nominated as one of the ten most promising photographers of 2006, he was a finalist at the International Color Awards and received the prize for Picture of the Year in 2011 from American Photo Magazine.  ...

About the artwork

From fashion shots to artistic nudes, from sensual portraits to stylised productions, Akif Hakan Celebi frees himself of the traditional rules of photography in order to combine techniques and styles as he sees fit. Through fantastical stagings, he strives to narrate a story to the spectator that is reminiscent of the worlds of fashion and film ? as familiar as they are contradictory. He leads us to Taipei on the island of Taiwan, sometimes in the midst of deserted alleyways, sometimes among picturesque grocer\'s shops brimming with nostalgia. His horizontal compositions adopt the format of the movie screen when his models pose with the virtuosity of actors before the lens. An American of Turkish origins, it is Akif Hakan Celebi\'s desire to travel that allows him to see the world as a stage, seeking inspiration from the different cultures that he encounters along the way. His images are described as "expressionistic" and are full of unusual colour combinations, lively details, and extreme contrasts.
