Description

Since the publication of Istanbul: Memories of a City, Orhan Pamuk has continued to add to his collection of photographs of Istanbul. Now, he has selected a range of photographs for the illustrated edition of Istanbul, linking each new image to his memoir. This lavish selection of 450 photographs features contributions from the Turkish photographer Ara Guler, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Istanbul's characteristic photography collectors, and contains previously unpublished family photographs from the author's archives. Orhan Pamuk was born in Istanbul and still lives in the family apartment building where his mother first held him in her arms. His portrait of his city is thus also a self-portrait, refracted by memory and the melancholy - or huzun - that all Istanbullus share: the sadness that comes of living amid the ruins of a lost empire. With cinematic fluidity, Pamuk moves from the lives of his glamorous, unhappy parents to the gorgeous, decrepit mansions overlooking the Bosphorus; from the dawning of his self-consciousness to the writers and painters - both Turkish and foreign - who would shape his consciousness of his city. Like Joyce's Dublin and Borges' Buenos Aires, Pamuk's Istanbul is a triumphant encounter of place and sensibility, beautifully written and immensely moving.
