Travel photography has always been one of my passions. The idea of seeing a destination as more than a tourist spot and capturing its feel through images is my favorite way to travel. Noticing how local culture, tourists, economics and politics interact in different ways in different places is fascinating, and I am always looking to portray that in my photography.
Istanbul and Greece, in different ways, are intriguing and complicated intersections of the ancient and the modern, tourists and local culture, globalized economics and local politics.
These are the central themes of an exhibit of my photography at Kirkwood Community College that will be on display through October 25 on the 2nd and 3rd floors of Neilsen Hall. A closing reception for the exhibit will be held on the 24th from 6-8 p.m.
