Istanbul photographer - Nikon F2 on a train

October 19, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

A great pleasure to be in Istanbul again - a  world metroplolis bridging the Bosphorous and bridging two continents and their people. In a cafe, I met a photographer in his 80s, Suleyman Ozcan. You may say, so what ? His father was a devout muslim and pilgrim to the Hajj. As such, taking photographs, in the 1940s was forbidden. The life choice that Suleyman took in taking a job as photographer to the Istanbul Elektrik Tünel Tramvay was therefore an act of disobedience. He went on to capture countless images with his Nikon F2.
