“My personal work is just a document of my life,” photographer Tommy Ga-Ken Wan tells Queerty. “The men who appear in those photographs are people who have featured in my life: friends, lovers, people I met one time at a party. I’ve never been shy about documenting and sharing those aspects.”

As a professional photographer, Tommy spends his time hopping between Glasgow, London and Hong Kong. But his work has taken him all over the globe.
“What I look for in the people I photograph has little to do with the way they look or the way they dress,” he says. “If it’s not because of an arrangement of external elements–light, lines, color–then the reason I photograph someone–man, woman, pensioner, child, celebrity, shopkeeper–is that I want to know or understand them, and the way I do that is by photographing them.”

First photograph. Model reclining in white briefs. Photographers reflection in window. Wait, what is that? Oh, it’s ok. It is only the reflection of the photographers white pants on the inner thigh of the model. I know that I have dick on the brain all the time but am I really the only one to notice this?
@Goforit: When I read your comment, I was thinking, “What is he talking about?” And… Then I looked at the photo again. OMG! What a hilariously dumb mistake for a “professional” photographer.
Thanks for the laugh.
I think he did this on purpose. He had to be aware of his reflection. I think he was doing one of those ‘artsy’ things where he put himself in the photo so as to show his physical ‘connection’. Makes sense? Maybe not! Ha.
