Istanbul photographer and lawyer Alper Yesiltas spent 12 years shooting the same window in different seasons until the owner demolished the building. I personally loved this set of images and kudos to Alper for his efforts.
How did it all started?
It wasn’t a window of someone’s house. It was opening out from a corridor in that apartment. There was a beautiful curtain on it. It was right against my room, only i was able to see it from that angle. From the idea that i’ll be the only person who will see that window, i decided to take photos of it in different seasons and put them side by side. It started like this. It was in 2005, i kept shooting it until May 1, 2017, the day i took the last photo.
The building was in a place called Camlica in Istanbul. It’s impossible to find anything related to that apartment there now, because owners dismantled it and built a new one.
About Alper Yesiltas
My name is Alper Yesiltas, lawyer & photographer living in Istanbul, imagining scenes and capturing memories for about 15 years. During that time, some of my photos are edited worldwide in books, magazines, exhibitions, web sites and were awarded in several photo contests. I believe photographic eye is in a person’s brain, not in his/her bags or hanged around his/her neck. If you manage to put it somewhere in your brain, every moment is the right moment to take it. So think about it. Remember, it’s your imagination, everything’s possible in your scene.
