photo series | The Mosques of Istanbul
At the Bosporus, where Europe and Asia shake hands, muezzin’s prayer call sounds five times a day. What would Istanbul be without all its mosques. Religiosity aside, they are cultural and architectural masterpieces. Here you can see my photo series of all historically important mosques of Istanbul, taken over years of Istanbul visits.
Mimar Sinan – the most famous architect of the Ottoman Empire, already bears Mimar, the reminiscence of architecture in his name. He and his very own mosque style characterise the historical and as well as contemporary Istanbul for centuries.
