Color: Black Orange
Product Details

Istanbul, 1975.

My second trip to Istanbul.

Her back is toward me in the Caferağa Medresesi. She's negotiating the price of an Anatolian rug. The vendor puts up a good-natured defense and, in the end, she gets the price she wanted and so does he.

I admire her dexterity, but it’s her skirt that has my attention.

The colors could have easily been pulled from the sunset view I took in each morning near the Galata Bridge.

Cerulean. Tangerine. Marigold. An exquisite combination I was never quite able to shake from memory.

You see it here.
