Book Description

When Nuri Bilge Ceylan portrays people by staging them inside a perfectly ordered, panoramic environment, they seem to look back into his camera – still it’s him who decides how their look looks. Sometimes they seem curious, sometimes proud, sometimes sad or resignated. But it’s always their look back at the camera that forces us to keep them in mind, to wonder who they might be, what they might think. But we will never know, for the expression on their face is ambivalent, a mixture of different moods and feelings – the human soul consists of many levels. Turkey Cinemascope is a collection 100 panoramic photographs shot by Nuri Bilge Ceylan at different locations in Turkey since 2003.
