In 1998, Alex Webb visited Istanbul and was immediately enthralled by the people, the layers of culture and history, the richness of street life. But what particularly drew him in was a sense of Istanbul as a border city, lying between Europe and Asia. As he writes, 'for thirty-some years as a photographer I have been intrigued by borders, places where cultures come together, sometimes easily, sometimes roughly'. He has returned to Istanbul whenever possible, and the resulting body of work - some of Webbs strongest to date - conveys the frisson of a culture in transition, yet firmly rooted in a complex history.
