Turkish Delights

Matthew Searle

Searle explores the extraordinary beauty of Turkey’s natural landscapes, cityscapes, and ancient monuments, and how they reflect the glory of a faded empire. His images explore the traditions of “place” and how they are juxtaposed in a modern and increasingly secular society. Searle’s work investigates the empty landscapes and intimate moments of Istanbul, the Black Sea, and the southern Mediterranean coastline, in a country geographically and culturally between Europe and Asia.
