Photographer's Note

this boy is standing now at a very important corner in his life;he is about to be circumsized:-)
there goes many discussions all over the world about this subject and they still didn't come to end.even yesterday I've read a news about a divorced couple went to court in USA and the reason was their conflict on circumsizing their boy or not;the mother was decisive on it's healthier and the father was thinking it were against human rights.
in Turkiye,the boys of muslem families get circumsized with a ceremony and before that the boy is taken for a visit to Eyup Sultan Mosque(if they live in istanbul) with his costumes;one of the main parts of the costume is the red band with 'maasallah' wish,and carries a Nazar Bonjuk for protection purposes.
