Photography as inspiration for music with Ozgur Ozkan
As a DJ and producer, Istanbul’s Ozgur Ozkan transmits a beautiful, hypnotic, and deeply touching sound. With a passion for progressive flow and mystical melodies, listening to his music can instantly transport you into a world of his creation. The energy which Ozgur shares through his music can also be felt through his photography, the visual representation of his personal interpretation of life. More than capturing the scene, he captures the atmosphere, the moment, the mood; his photos transporting you to another time and space that carries with it a story to remember.

My profession is graphic designing for advertising agencies and photographers for fashion and architectural designs, so I was in the studios often. It helped me for my hobby.

Sunrises and sunfalls and cities that I visited for gigs.
How do you feel your photography relates to your music?
For me it has a good balance between visual and musical arts. Photos are part of an inspiration for creating music.
What is important for you to express through your art?
The things that you face in life. Experiencing different cultures, new people, and the feedback from listeners.
