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.


Well, Istanbul is one of my favourite cities...
