Born in Turkey, and based in London has bestowed photographer Olgaç Bozalp with a hybrid perspective of the Eastern and Western worlds. His cultural awareness and sensitivity to personal identities mixed with fashion and documentary is what makes his work feel simultaneously nostalgic and alien. Olgaç explores the world of his subjects by frequently shooting in their homes, providing an intimate portrayal between subject and photographer that is undeniably captivating and informative.
Olgaç was recently featured in British Journal of Photography’s “Ones to Watch” of 2019, stating “Bozalp has been at the forefront of a movement to diversify visual culture, introducing new ideas about gender, beauty and race.”, as well as Aperture’s “Element of Style” issue, that investigates the role of style, dress, and beauty in the formation of individual identity. His work has been published by M Le Monde, T Magazine, Dazed, Dust, Replica and Atmos.
