Focusing on community sexuality and body politics, Ceylan Atuk continues to portray striking images of women in societies where men are dominant. Atuk prefers this perspective due to its level of reality and intensity.

I turn realistic scenes into a story in my subconscious and present them in an architectural template.

Whoever views my photographs can realize they are influenced by relevant issues from my surroundings and, sometimes, a combination of past and present.

I try to empathize with people who view my photographs and they can likewise empathize with me whilst viewing them.
