Follow me to the shadows of the cave. In this modern world, Instagram screens are the walls of our caves, where everyone is happy, charismatic, and beautiful. It is hard to recognize the reality. We are all too busy to see it or to feel it. To see the real happiness and beauty I took a journey into to the shadows. Shadows symbolize the subconscious side of us. Contrary to Freud, according to Jung shadow can include everything outside the light of consciousness and may be positive, negative or creative side of us. I am using shadows, silhouettes, bright light, and dark black to reach you and to share what’s left that’s real or subconsciously real. Here lies the mystery of shadows and silhouettes. When I see a shadow or a silhouette it is sometimes melancholic, sometimes mysterious and sometimes fun. I think life has beauty each and every moment and by looking at the shadows we are able to see the good in the darkness.

BIO | Gokhan Gokcay – @gokhangogo is the member of @oneyecollective. Life has beauty each and every moment. I am sharing it in the simplest form as black and white” with deep shadows, reflections, light flares, and dark streets. This is an unfinished long-term project called ” follow me to the shadows of the cave”. The shadows are the truth and reality that is left in this modern digital world. Either I see it from an objective or from an iPhone it is pure reality, it is pure fun. Join me and; let’s go deep into the shadows 🙂
I am from Istanbul, Turkey. The roads took me to my university education where I met my lovely wife. I moved back and forth between Paris and Istanbul due to my Job, knowing all too well the streets of both cities. Now I am living in Paris. I am working in a global lighting company, Light and Shadow is my work and my passion. I am hoping to create a portrait of the dark shadows of the beautiful cities.
