Cihan Öncü, currently works and resides in İstanbul, Turkey, splitting his practice between his own artistic photography projects and commisioned work in fashion.

Creating various series since 2018, Öncü's photography reflects his inner world as well as his personal journey; photographs of domestic life and daily objects often play the leading role in his work. He has notably focused on still life photography in past years.

In his darkroom practice, Öncü continues to experiment on his own colour printing technique which he believes provides him with a larger playground to convey emotions and invite sensual intimacy between the viewer and his photographs.

Öncü is now working on a project on the cycle of life, capturing the body's stages from pregnancy to old age. He is represented by Dirimart Gallery.

His work also has been published by W Magazine, Atmos, WSJ Magazine, Double Magazine, Document Journal, Christian Dior.
