#Gezi Park. These pictures were made with no assignment in hand and no particular desire to even make a coherent body of work. After being wounded in Libya, I made a promise never to cover war, civil unrest or protests ever again. But whilst living in Istanbul, one weekend I witnessed a burgeoning protest against the construction of another mall on one of the few remaining slivers of green in a city that is increasingly urbanised. My purpose was to just witness and to observe with a sharper eye from experience, following the crowds from the peripheries.
