Young man on the town, Istanbul

I love this image of a young man out on the town, in Istanbul, early one evening. With his cool red sneakers, nonchalant cigarette, airy wave of greeting to someone who is out of the frame, he seems an expression of the city, an embodiment of hip young city-dwellers everywhere.

Of course, a city as ancient, as vast, as Istanbul – old Constantinople – has many identities, many histories, and more places and vistas than I can begin to imagine. Still, this image says something to me, about time, and place, and about being young, and urban.
