A Tale of Two Cities
I live between two places in Turkey – the mega city of Istanbul and the ancient village of Nicea, now Iznik. Although they have the same culture they are totally different in pace and mindset. I love both places but for totally different reasons.
The big city meshes with my own energy. I love dashing around exploring its nooks and crannies. There is always something happening, something exciting to photograph. Life in the village, on the other hand, is quiet, repetitive, and a bit predictable.
Although there is always a jarring leap going from one life style to the other, this project showed me that there are also some very strong threads holding the two sides of my life together.
