Kadikoy, Istanbul, Turkey


by Elif Aktas

SOLID - VOID / OLD - NEW aims to reproduce images of abandoned buildings with dreams looking at them through the eyes of children. By using the photographs of such buildings around Kadikoy-Moda, the childhood memories that are being relived within the scope of duality such as Solid-Void and Old-New.

Whenever I see an abandoned building, that building is filled with clouds. With a gentle breeze, my childhood memories are revived, and I find myself following the traces of life. This is a building in Kadıköy-Moda in the neighborhood where I live. A place far from my past.
