I fell in love with Istanbul and its people when I visited last year, and I’m missing it. It is a beautiful, walkable, historical, modern, photogenic and very welcoming city.
I was lucky to spend part of my time there last spring on a workshop led by photographer Anthony Epes. Exploring a city with a great photographer always opens your eyes to new things.
If you fancy trying it out for yourself, I highly recommend Anthony’s trips. If you fancy something sooner than that, and you’re in London, do head along to the East End Film Festival and visit his Istanbul at Dawn Photography Exhibition (22-28 June, Spitalfields Market).
A small warning from me: if you haven’t already been to Istanbul, you will be desperate to visit once you have seen his photos! Mention my name and you’ll get in for free. I jest – it’s free entry anyway. Enjoy!
