I am a mixed media artist, exploring the representation of identity, applying experimental techniques with analogue and digital photography. My current works questioning the representation of male gender stereotypes, interrogating the concept of ‘Man-up!’ Using my own body, the work becomes an investigation of myself. Previous work has explored my own cultural identity: having a Turkish and Scottish heritage. By weaving both heritages together through the use of colour and symbols, creating an essence of physicality: a photographic object. By appropriating the family album and manipulating the images, I create a sense of disturbance within the family and highlight the division between my cultures.
