Cityscapes - Pervez Photography

Cities are such a unique place to shoot. As centers of mass populations, they are an embodiment of the human experiment: they show us how we live together, how we form a society, but uniquely so. This is because cities inevitably include diverse groups of people, spanning race, class, ethnicity, gender, religion, etc. It is hard to not find a particular group of people in these metropolises. And in this sea of humanity, there are also majestic buildings, parks, and unique architecture. In all of this, people function with normalcy. In that sense, cities remind me that we are capable of living with one another, despite our differences, and that there is nothing unusual about it. City photography has the potential to capture all of this, and that is simply magical.

Galata Tower late at night in Istanbul. My friend and I were out exploring Istanbul and shooting photography late at night. We made our way across the Galata Bridge and up steep climb to the Galata Tower area around 1:30 am. The crowds had dissipated, and we had the streets almost to ourselves to find cool angles to shoot the tower at. This was my favorite - an empty alley that looked straight down towards the tower, at around 3 am. Well worth being exhausted the next day, particularly because its rare to ever get a photo of this area without a ton of people.
