SA Few Days In Istanbul Street Photography Series By Gorkem Keser. Istanbul is such a beautiful city that it inspires many people to write poetry. There are people who long for it when they’re away. But to me, Istanbul has always been a city of chaos, crowd and brute. It was more livable in the past, but now things like politics, sacrificing nature for the sake of profit, etc. have changed the very soul of the city.
If you could walk around Istanbul with someone familiar to the city (for safety reasons), that would be the most exciting experience. On one street you may see people performing a prayer, while on another you may see people dancing. You may even encounter religious Muslims in a church. If you’re interested in that kind of experience.
