About this shot

First stranger I asked that saturday. It was in fact kinda hard to convince him … he could not believe I actually mean this serious. In these kind of situations I choose give some more priority to his story in the beginning … I normally do this during the shoot but mainly after.


I recognized this stranger because if his remarkable style (hair and boots).


About this stranger

Meet Gökhan … who is 22 years old, living in Wilhelmsburg - a suburb in Hamburg. He was about to meet his cousins and friends somewhere around a trendy mile we call "Schanze".


Gökhan loves fashion. "But unfortunately I work as a supervisor for machinists - I'd rather be part of the fashion industry". Gökhan also loves girls. The emphasis is on girls, not one girl, but girls. You know what I mean - plural ;-) > "Are you a player" - "Yes" - "Can I write that?" - "Sure, you can."


Gökhan is openly not monogamous. He must be "The Player".


As it might be part of a player lifestyle, he likes to party a lot. You might see him on any big hiphop or house party in our city.


He also plays soccer in a team called Panteras Negras and he probably can't deny the resemblance to a famous soccer player from Portugal.
