Istanbul - Surfaces

Istanbul. The city with a million faces. Men drinking tea in the middle of the bazar, fishermen on the bridge surrounded by honking taxis. Senses are exploding and emotions pressed into every even so tiny spot. I've met so many incredible people and stumbled into some extraordinary friendships and within seconds I felt a security and bond I didn't ever experience with strangers before. I had hoped to find people to photograph. I found friends. I've probably been told lots of interesting storys but sadly I only understood very little. But like a turkish saying says: 'doings are the mirror of humanity, words are not what matters.' I ended up with lots of great, personal pictures I turned into a book and a movie.
