M.Ugur Umay who was born in Ankara as a son of a musician had his Jazz&Drum
classes in Gordion Academy Jazz School. Yet he was in high school years, he had been developing a passion for charcoal drawing and caricature and had several degrees in some competitions. He had his first step in photographing in 2005 with an analog camera that was bought in an second-hand dealer store. By the time he blended his technical abilities with his world view. The young photographer, who focus on panaromic landscapes generally, highlights not only his dreamworld with his photo-stories, but also the reality with the shots captured in city-life-human triangle. Umay, who had his focus on Digital-Art trend, is trying to recreate “moment” notion with bringing together the images that were captured in different times and different places.
He has been collecting his Photograph and Digital Art works under the name/mark of “Digital Foxy” since 2008.
Umay, has created an existence hysteria in his inner world by blending the romantism of the truth with the unrefuted beauty of life for the approach to art and he took out a rebellion which is at peace with himself.
He continues to works and instructor in the C41 Photography & Visual Art Workhouse since December 2013.
