|《歐美寫真報導雜誌》ELSKA MAGAZINE Issue #06──ISTANBUL TURKEY
Issue (06) is dedicated to Istanbul, Turkey 's (as well as Europe 's) largest city.
It 's also the LGBT capital of the Moslem world with a vibrant society
holding on tightly to their freedom in a political climate that is increasingly conservative.
It is because of this dynamism that this was one of the easiest issues
yet to find men interested in participating in the Elska project.
Despite problems with homophobia, including the recent violent
suppression of the annual Pride march, the men here were fearless
and proud to be part of this edition.
Inside you 'll meet thirteen local boys, photographed throughout this massive city,
on both the Asian and European sides. Some are also shot in their own homes,
giving an authentic and personal touch. Additionally,
each boy contributed a short story from their life, adding an even more
intimate flavour to the Elska experience. You 'll also meet two more guys
in our Elska Dehors section. One is a series of self-portraits from Manhattan,
New York by luke kurtis where the artist lets his「bad skin」be unhidden.
The other is a series of low-fi colour and pink-filtered polaroids from Montr?al,
Canada by Jonathan Lemieux, who also contributed in our Berlin issue.
