Travel and food go hand in hand.
Often photographers find their love for food photography, from their passion for traveling and I am no exception. I simply love the taste of the spices in the air and the colours of different cultures all around me. You will find me wandering round the local food markets for hours with my camera in my hand, trying all sorts of local delicacies, while soaking up the ethnicity of my surrounds.
On a recent trip to the Istanbul, I find a city just overflowing with traditions from many different continents. It’s where Europe meets Asia with only the Bosphorus Straits to separate them. This amazing city has two hearts with two souls. One side has the old quarter with its markets, its cobbled streets and amazing architecture dating back to the days when it was called Constantinople. The other side of the water has a very modern edge, brimming with galleries, quirky shops, spas and cool roof top bars. Both parts of the city are held together by Galata Bridge, where men stand fishing day and night, while the constant traffic pours from one side of the city and back again.
