If posting has been a little erratic lately that’s in part because I’ve been gearing up for a week-long exhibition I’m taking part in called Printemps Des Artistes which opens in Galatasaray next week. The theme is Passages. I’ve been trying for the last couple of months to shoot, select and narrow down a number of photos which fit this theme, but also sing of Istanbul. The images shown here were shot for this purpose but didn’t make the final cut. While it’s a fantastic compliment to be asked to be part of an exhibition,  narrowing down the images for my first exhibition was really difficult for me. Fortunately, I had plenty of guidance from the organizers and was also able to draw upon the expertise of a true friend, Ahmet Polat — I couldn’t have done it without you. All the self-induced torture and torment dissipated when I saw the images appear in large format art prints at Difo in Seyrantepe. Hope anyone who’s in town will come out to the opening and see the final cut.

Doors open at 18:30 Friday, April 12 at Sainte Pulchérie Fransız Lisesi,
Çukurluçesme Sokak No 7, Parmakkapı 34433 Beyoglu, Istanbul
