"Depicting Istanbul is created by re-contextualization and reinterpretation of the visual material collected for Ali Taptik’s series 'Kaza ve Kader', 'Familiar Strangers' and 'Nothing Surprising'. [Thus creating] two different but related works that share the same body back to back like a mirror image, they can be called the 'Seamese' twins of the publishing world. Ugur Tanyeli’s writings on 'Introduction to History of Visuality in Turkey' and Ali Taptik’s photographs 'Depicting Istanbul'. What the first tells theoretically, the second one analyzes visually.

"Taptik shows a new Istanbul thus drawing attention to contemporary enrichment of visuality. He is showing an uncanny, vast urban landscape that is alien to its own inhabitants. Tanyeli is explaining historical visual production practices, Tapt?k’s photographs are depicting a new situation with visual necessities and possibilities. We see unfamiliar un-estheticized Istanbul or Istanbuls, but more importantly it is not reduced the known contemporary urban issues. Thus this twin book wants to show a different image to those who think of Miniature as historical visual production as well as to those think of the contemporary visuality only deriving from the beautiful landscapes or urban conflict photographs."--the publisher.
