Photographer's Note

these boys were homeless and living just in the backyard of a famous mosque Eyüp Sultan,in Istanbul.this mosque is always crowded with people who comes to pry for something and it's their ADAQ.when their wish became true,then they do what their ADAQ was.the ADAQ might be to feed 100 homeless people for 1 day or sacrifice a sheep as Qurban and dispersing the meat to poor people etc.
these boys were homeless but never shy,they wanted me to take their picture for just a pose and while I was trying to capture the moment,the one at the right was moving his hand in a way and saying 'we can solve,if u've a trouble':-)
and Istanbul is an important center of crime in Turkey nowadays.lots of boys are moved/kidnapped there from their villages in Eastern parts,and forced for crime by some sorts of gangs.
