From birds on her window pane to Turkish coffee cups; from seagulls flying over Bosphorus to swinging laundries on clotheslines strecthed over streets; from lovely faces of children to musicians’ gifted fingers; from jazz ferries to trains, from rakı scatters like clouds, like mist in long, thin rakı glasses to… well…in short to everything that an İstanbul lover can experience: this is what Zeynep sees, shows and shares…

Her photos tell stories of İstanbul without needing a word… her photos speak for themselves…and speak rather well…

The ones who miss İstanbul… the ones who want to know İstanbul can take a journey through İstanbul by Zeynep’s photos…see the life in İstanbul…see living İstanbul…

(Seeing the life in istanbul and seeing the living İstanbul in her photos is the reason why I love Zeynep’s photos. Another reason is the way she sees details, such as the pigeon’s flying, the effort of the kid when passing the saltshaker, the effort, impatience and appetite visible on the face of another kid when trying to get a banana.)

    I am impressed by the range and quality of Zeynep’s work. Her treatment of color and light is well done. I have only recently begun to capture photos of this great city, and now understand how tricky it is to work with a camera. we are lucky though, since Istanbul is such a treasure of places, history and people.

    I also have started to document the variety of people and their fashions, in the context of style. If you are interested, take a look:

    Enjoy!
