Photographer's Note

SantralIstanbul is so addictive some people practically live there round the clock, somehow managing to avoid the security guards. This young girl I happened to detect hiding among the deep shadows of the night was one of those that camp at the Santral. She was pale and ghost-like due to hunger, exhaustion and insomnia. She said she had taken 8,649 photos so far and hadn't been back home since the opening. I told her that she should have this terrible addiction treated and resume her normal life as soon as possible, but she ran away, shouting "noooo, nooo!" and vanished in the dark corners of the museum. Poor little girl...I'll never forget you. May God help you.

This photo is for BurGu. I know she will sympathize with the plight of my subject.

To whom it may concern: There isn't any excessive pp here just as there wasn't any in my previous shot, which was inactivated on the grounds of being heavily-postprocessed. I converted this shot to b/w, cropped from the top, added sepia tint and applied noise reduction to give it a blurry effect.
