Five of these photographs were winners in International Photography Awards 2017 - IPA - http://photoawards.com/winner/zoom.php?eid=8-137952-17  From a travel feature on Istanbul in Norwegian Financial Daily. Istanbul was the place I did not know I longed for until I arrived there. Still, it felt like in the midst of the city's immense beauty, deep change was taking place. My best moment though, was in The Blue Mosque, a tired picture-maker, getting 90 minutes of rest in the middle of lovely ladies praying and families talking quietly and children playing. I felt the soft prayer carpet under my bare feet, just watching and breathing, happy to be alive and able to be there.
