Photographer's Note

When I went to New York City to vote in the referendum, my wife and I made a weekend getaway out of it. My wife had not seen the 9/11 Memorial & Muesum and I lost my photos from my first visit to a disk crash. So, after I voted, we went there.

This photo was taken along the foundation of South Tower. What remains of the foundation is displayed, along with huges photos of the stages of construction of the World Trade Center, culminating in the photo of the completed structure. This shows that last photo, hanging above the remnants of the foundation. Looking at my photo, the viewer might get focused on photo of the World Trade Center, not noticing the current reality of its ruins around the photo. I thought this might be a metaphor for myself and the state of affairs in Turkey. I am so focused on the memory of the Turkey of my childhood, western looking and progressing, that I fail to see the ruins of the same Republic.
