Yener Torun – Images of Istanbul as a Colourful and Modern City

“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.

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.“”
