The photographs which inspired this book visualize the homes of a group of residents in Kuştepe, an area in Istanbul. These Istanbulites are people whose homes rarely get photographed because they are not in the interest of home decor magazines. When photographing them, Engin Gerçek makes visible a group of urban dwellers whose lives are less-known and rarely seen, and portrays neighborhoods that are under the threat of transformation and gentrification.
