In the latest Romance issue from Magazine Antidote, Turkish-born Cuneyt Akeroglu shoots a series of nudes in The Red Room that explore all the different emotions that love can cause. From the romantic to the disturbing, the stunning shots explore the lighter and darker sides of love, sex, pleasure and pain. A fine arts graduate from Mayis University in Turkey, the now London-based photographer persuaded a stellar cast of models including Lara Stone, Daisy Lowe, Anja Rubik and Natasha Poly to strip for his series.

Akeroglu says of the project: “The Red Room symbolises the heart as a physical object, which is similar in everyone, but our emotions which in a romantic way we think come from the heart, are very different from person to person. We don’t love in the same way, but when we do, we’re in the red room, trapped by our emotions.”
