Istanbul's Iconic Waterfront Mansions ​​​​​​​

YALI is a historical exploration project. All mansions are located along the shores of the Bosphorus which is the continental boundary between Europe and Asia. These landmarks hit me in my early ages, but it's not easy to focus their architectural beauty because of unplanned urbanization. So I created an abstract mansion tour with 2 seconds GIF loops of my memories. Project is inspired by kaleidoscopic reflections on the water. It’s a mixed media art project, combines photography, videography and graphic design.
