Gritty, Dark & Sexy Photography from Haris Nukem

The London-based artist and creative director captures moments of love, sex, despair and indulgence.

His subjects, often riddled with tattoos and photographed in dark, dreary settings, are exposed in a very personal, vulnerable light. It's the kind of work that sends a message of empowerment - a fuck-you attitude that makes you want to bare your soul and take a stand.

There's a thick air of intensity that sends a powerful message when viewing his work that has lent itself well to streetwear brands such as Noose & Monkey, Boy London, Love Sick and other cult brands.
