Ugur Kayan is a Turkish freelance photographer based in Istanbul that produces intense and exuberant NSFW shots. In his work the woman’s body and its expressive potential are the central focus, they are the subjects and protagonists of the photographs. His style and aesthetics unashamedly reveal the sensual aspect of bodies, they are disturbing, allusive and provocative images that lay bare both the performer and the viewer.
His works are exuberant, lively and disorienting, part of a broad and sexualized view of the world and a primal expression of creativity. Ugur Kayan plays with reflections, contrasts, colors, the seduction of sight unseen and explores the intense contention between light and shadow. Ugur is the founder of White Magazine, an online magazine on NSFW photography.

Jake Wangner is a young American photographer who creates hypnotic analogue portraits. His career began in 2010, at the age of fourteen, and has not stopped since. This is his only certainty.
“In 2010 I had my first pay day. I took photos and video of a graduation at the high school my mom taught at in Keller, Texas. I sold DVD’s to the parents and made enough money to convince my 14-year old self that this was my lifetime career.”
Jake Wangner is a creative, original and thoughtful photographer who produces beautifully crafted analogue shots. Playing with colour, light, timing and double exposure, he creates powerful, dynamic and sensitive images.
Colour plays a fundamental role in his work, the choice of one shade rather than another has a consequence on the whole result of the shot. Colours convey different energies, emotions and moods and each combination produces a unique effect. His photographs are a mirror in which to look at oneself, prompting the viewer to confrontation and self-analysis.
Jake Wangner has also recently published a book of photography and poetry entitled alone, together, which can be purchased on his personal website. See a selection of his shots here, follow him on Instagram and visit his website.
