About the Book
For almost a week I have been in istanbul. A week long in such a interesting town, for a streetphotographer like myself just perfect. From dawn till late in the evening something is going on. And between all the rush, there is also room for calming down. To look at the Bosporus and to think about life. The trip to istanbul meant more than just a visit to another town to me. It helped me in my development as person. As a tribute my first book is about Istanbul. And perhaps also about myself. Enjoy it!

I am a professional photojournalist and a very keen street photographer. I like to make documentaries, but I like editorial portraits and music and theatre photography as well. People are having a central role in my photography. Emotions and the acting of people are major ingredients. At location I am at my best, since improvisation is one of my strengths. I try to keep any manipulation to the minimum, during and after taking the photos. I photograph the things as they appear in front of my camera. Ambient light is my favourite light. I have a daily weblog, with lots of street photography: http://basdemeijer.nl
