Photographer's Note

The wintry weather continues in Istanbul. To stay out of the chilly rain, we went to the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art.

Istanbul Modern is Turkey’s first private museum to organize modern and contemporary art exhibitions. It was founded in 2004 and occupies an 8,000 square meter site on the shores of the Bosphorus.

Istanbul Modern embraces a global vision to collect, preserve, exhibit and document works of modern and contemporary art and make them accessible to art lovers.

Apart from permanent and temporary exhibition galleries, a photography gallery, and spaces for educational and social programs, the museum offers a cinema, restaurant, design store and an extensive library.

This is taken from the entrance to the exhibits. To the right of the metal sculpture, you can observe a young child's own interpretation of art in rain puddles.
