LISTENING TO ISTANBUL

Last year I stumbled across a brilliant project called The Soundscape of Istanbul: an interactive project to map the sounds of particular areas of the city, allowing you to take a sonic journey before you even step foot onto the soil!

I recently promised myself I would stop having my headphones in when exploring a new city. When you're busy taking photographs, it's easy to forget there is more to a place than what you capture on your camera. A city like Istanbul that is transforming at a rapid pace may sound completely different on my next visit. While listening to the city, here is what I was able to capture.
