This collection is not a complete album, but rather an impression of modern İstanbul with a historic backdrop. It reflects the city through scenes of the streets and its inhabitants. In this album, the reader will come across two İstanbuls: A romantic landscape with palaces, mosques, churches, synagogues and waterfront mansions along the sparkling Bosphorus on one side and a lively metropolis which at times camouflages this romantic landscape with impressive skyscrapers and busy traffic.
