my istanbul (1990 – 1995)

Istanbul images that existed yesterday… Today they are almost vanishing…
These are the images which i want to see them in the future, indeed…

“Istanbul is a city of the photograph…”
I am an Istanbul photographer.
I live in Istanbul.
I feel responsible
to Istanbul,
to the history of Istanbul,
to the future generation of my city…
I have been constantly photographed the silhouette of Istanbul,
voluted streets, houses, city ferries, seagulls, children and people…
I will definitely continue to photograph them…

Levent Karaoğlu composed the music; for the yearning of a different Istanbul which has full of seagull sounds, instead of traffic horns…
