Cinema-Inspired Beauty and Elegance


Editorial photographer Cihan Alpgiray captures the beauty and elegance of models in various locations. The photographer, who is based in Turkey, finds inspiration from the art of cinema. Alpgiray uses fashion, design, lighting, and location to bring to life his images, creating a story within the frame. Though his subjects stand motionless, there is the presence of action and thought that speaks through the photos.

The natural and architectural backdrops add to the reality of each storyline. In one instance, there is a beautiful woman enveloped by Mother Nature's daisies and in another a young woman sits on a cobble stoned sidewalk, stretching out her legs. In addition to the variety of settings, Alpgiray's portfolio boasts a wide range in color representation, from neutral tones to vivid colors, that translate well in editorial photography. Alpgiray's beautiful work has been covered in magazines including Vogue and Elle Turkey.
