Istanbul Shown As A Colorful Modern City By Yener Torun
What imagery comes to mind when you think about Istanbul? Whatever it is, it’s probably not modern architecture, and that is what Turkish photographer Yener Torun is trying to change.
“Just think of the Istanbul photos you have seen before: grand mosques, old streets, seagulls over the Bosphorus. I show a completely different side. Even long-term residents can’t believe these pics were taken in the city they live in,” says the photographer.
He regularly updates his Instagram account with these incredibly vibrant examples of Istanbul’s modern architecture. It started a couple of years ago, when he found an inspiration for his photography in architecture: “Usually architecture easily provides the things I look for – colours, geometric patterns, strong lines, shadow plays.“
