New Work from Turkey

I had the privilege to work on a book and exhibit project in Cappadocia, Turkey. It’s rare to have these kinds of opportunities, especially in today’s climate. I am grateful to Zaman for commissioning us, Selahattin Sevi who edited the project and photographer Kürşat Bayhan patiently guided me through Cappadocia. The book is gorgeous! Twenty-four of my favorite living photographers and I documented different aspects of life, culture and the beauty of Turkey. The exhibit and book includes the stunning work of Jane Evelyn Atwood, Bruno Barbey, Carolyn Drake, Nikos Economopoulos, Ed Kashi, Anthony Suau, Reza, Steve McCurry and so many other truly great photographers. There are also interviews of all the photographers online.
