Photographer's Note

Aksaray (White Palace) is a neighborhood in Istanbul. It is so named because it was founded by migrants from Aksaray in central Turkey, deported there by Mehmet II to repopulate the city after the Ottoman Conquest. It also borders the neighborhood of Eminönü around the Pertevniyal Valide Sultan Mosque.
