Photographer Yener Torun Captures Istanbul’s Sublime Colourful Side

Full screen

Over the past two years, 32-year-old architect Yener Torun has been capturing a side of Istanbul many never see. Instead of photographing the city’s elaborate palaces and picturesque mosques, Torun focuses on its colourful, contemporary architecture.

‘Unfortunately there aren’t a lot of buildings like these in Turkey,’ he told The Guardian. ‘So I spend most of my spare time finding them – it’s like a treasure hunt.’ In Istanbul’s desert of grey urban space and grand historic structures, Torun seeks out the city’s less ornate, more modern lines. “I show a completely different side,” he says. “Even long-term residents can’t believe these pics were taken in the city they live in.”

Over 100,000 Instagram followers now join the photographer on his bold, geometric, and rainbow-hued adventures. If Istanbul wasn’t already on your bucket list, it will be after this.
