Samet Durgun is a Turkey-born artist and photographer of Abkhazian descent. His work explores the relationship between the concepts of beauty and toxic masculinity within historically excluded, oppressed communities such as female and queer. He is known for his finely detailed, saturated, high-contrast work. His photographic mission is to unearth and uplift the power of diverse communities with realistic and inclusive visual stories. For Samet, all a photographer needs is a character with a sense of personal beauty.
He currently lives and thrives in Berlin.
