Posing is Öykü Başar, a professional Turkish bodybuilder at the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness. This image was on the cover of issue 6 of Safar, an independent design and visual culture magazine based in Beirut, Lebanon. It was shot on location in Istanbul, Turkey, with art direction and production by Altin Tatli.

Mohamad Abdouni is a photographer, filmmaker and curator based between Beirut and Istanbul. He is also Editor in-Chief and Creative Director of COLD CUTS magazine, the photo journal exploring Queer Culture and the Middle East. His work has been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum in New York, the Institute of Islamic Culture in Paris, the Foam Gallery in Amsterdam and in festivals around Europe such as IQMF and the Leeds Queer Film Festival. He has worked with the likes of Vice UK, Vogue US, Vogue Italia, Burberry, Puma, Slate, Gucci, Fendi, Farfetch, King Kong, Marie-Claire and L’officiel, whereas his personal projects tend to focus on the untold stories of Beirut and the rising Queer culture of the city through several documentaries and photo stories that have been exhibited around the world and published in Queer publications from around the globe. Whether in still photography or moving images, Abdouni seamlessly shifts between raw aesthetics and overly romanticised visuals.
