Cemetery, Suleymaniye Mosque, Istanbul, Turkey, 2009

Roses are emblematic of the natural world. Like man, they grow, bloom, and die. Here, they are juxtaposed with the graves of man, honoring the memory of those who rest here. Not far away is the tomb of Suleyman the Magnificent, who built the Ottoman Empire. A fitting image – it was Suleyman who fostered Istanbul’s golden age of artistic achievement.
