Istanbul based Architect and photographer Yener Torun has lived in this city for 14 years. He spends his time wandering around the city capturing colorful buildings and sharing his work to his Instagram, which has over 300 posts and 51,000 followers. Istanbul is the ultimate city of contrasts, with the new minimalistic buildings that add a splash of color to it. 32-year-old photographer Yener Torun aims to show a clean minimalistic view of the city, as it contrasts with the ornate, Ottoman architecture. “Istanbul is mystical and historic but it is also a modern city and I believe increasing the variety of aspects provides a better understanding of the city. I decided to look for something different and started searching less ornate, simpler, modern lines of the city”, says Yener Torun.

“I dig every corner of the city and I spend most of my free time looking for them and finding them is like finding an oasis in a desert because Istanbul is quite like a desert of grey buildings. There has been an explosion in construction business in Turkey in the last 10 years with many new structures bringing different stylistic approaches”.
