Nuri Bilge Ceylan

The image of an Istanbul covered with snow has intrigued me since I read Orhan Pamuk's "My name is red"
On a trip to the city on the bosphorus, some weeks ago, I saw the fascinating pictures made by the celebrated Turkish cinematographer Nuri Bilge Ceylan. They capture well the setting of Pamuk's marvelous book. The visually haunting movies and photographs of Ceylan are well worth a look
