Amidst the constant chaos of Istanbul's Taksim Square, I wanted to capture the people in solitude. So I decided to use the sky as their backdrop. Taksim Square is filled with people walking in all directions, busily going about their day. They're usually lost in thought and I find you see a wide variety of "characters" here, which I wanted to bring out individually. With the constant crowds, chaos and movement here, that's not so easy. So I used the sky, lighting, and composition to showcase these individuals candidly, with style.
All photos were shot completely candid using only the natural sunlight. There was no "shooting from the hip." When someone caught my eye in the right light, I quickly kneeled down and made the shot as they walked by, composing similarly to put focus on both the "character" and the sky.
