Photographer Alper Yesiltas Spent 12 Years Shooting This Window Until Owners Demolished The Building
Istanbul photographer and lawyer Alper Yesiltas spent 12 years shooting the same window in different seasons until the owner demolished the building.
“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,” he told 121clicks.
