In Istanbul, I am beautiful Part 2

David du Toit recently visited Istanbul, Turkey where he beautifully photographed people going about their daily lives. Here he speaks about why he fell in love with this colourful place. "I had the privilege of visiting Istanbul and it turned out to be one of the most beautiful cities that I have ever visited.  To me, Istanbul is a city where you use all your senses."


"You hear the in people’s voices, even if you don’t understand a word they say."

"You smell the freshness of bananas that a man carries on his shoulders a short distance from you."

"You see the courage and strength on a woman’s face, yet she seems vulnerable and distressed."

 "You taste the sesame seeds on Simit bread that a man carries effortlessly on his head."

"And lastly, you feel the love of the city, exuded by its wonderful people."
