“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.” - Cihan Unalan. Explorer Portraits came about when Cihan was working on a campaign for Miles & Smiles - a Turkish airlines.

Last year I was working on the new campaign for Miles & Smiles (Turkish Airlines). It was a story about great explorers. So on the set we had so many cool costumes, plastic makeup and a great cast. After we shot what we needed to shoot, I asked 4 of the cast to stick around so that we could shoot something extra for ourselves.

They did and we had a quick session for an hour and we ended up with these images. The backgrounds were pre-prepared, printed 2mx1m and everything was carefully planned. Overall it was a fun project to work on.
