The Inspiration Behind 'Silhouettes'

"Silhouettes" draws heavily from Sercan's extensive curation of over a thousand photos, particularly in nude photography, the collection's stark black and white aesthetic is inspired by the nuances of light, shadow, and the human form, embodying the simplicity found in black and white photography.

Each artwork in the "Silhouettes" collection transcends mere visual representation, inviting viewers into a realm of infinite imagination, Sercan challenges us to look beyond the surface, to perceive the unseen and imagine the unspoken, it is a visual dialogue between the artist and the observer, where the contours of silhouettes serve as a language of their own.
