Street Photography in Istanbul: Soha’s Lens


By Soha Menassa

“It wasn’t my first time in Istanbul; I had already fallen in love with this city when I went there in December 2007. It was a cold snowy winter, but the melancholy emanating from the history of the city was magical. This time was different, summer gave it a whole new dimension that brought to my mind Orhan Pamuk’s vision of Istanbul: “‘Where is this melancholy city you talk about? My Istanbul is a sunny place”. But Istanbul is not just a historic place; it is a multitude of cultures and people walking in the streets, eating, begging, working, sleeping, loving, praying…. living. I don’t know if a photo can ever capture the soul of this city… or any other city; but it can surely reflect our vision of it.” – Soha Menassa
