Photographer's Note

this one is for Rüya, who is always never there...

Orhan Pamuk, The Black Book

In Istanbul, a lawyer called Galip comes home from work to find his beloved wife Rüya missing. She has taken no suitcases, and she has left a brief note that doesn’t say where she’s gone or why. Galip thinks Rüya must be with Celâl, a popular newspaper columnist who because has disappeared too. Thus begins an extravagantly playful tale that is both a murder mystery and an absorbing journey through Istanbul’s fabled past and its troubled present. In its mind-bending exploration of identity and meaning, memory and love, The Black Book brings to mind the unforgettable urban odysseys of Joyce and Proust.
