Laura Domrose is a native Montanan, living in and experiencing Istanbul, Turkey.  About this current body of work, Laura says, “Istanbul is an amazing city of contrasts and contradictions.  It is constantly changing – for better and for worse, and this creates a continuous element  – almost overwhelming at times- of intrigue. I find many opportunities to capture the ironies of these contradictions and intricate layers.  Istanbul is a mass in motion in a sense. Waves of people trying to get to their destination move, while others already at their destination remain to watch the flow.

“The majority of my images are from meanderings in different areas of Istanbul, where I try to capture the many layers of overlapping complexities. I return to the same areas of the city often to find that places no longer exist or are morphing into something completely different. This myriad of activity compels me to try and capture the process in its entirety. The best subjects are everywhere here.”
