In the beginning of 2013, I lived in Istanbul for one month. Soon after I arrived I realized that there were not many trees or green areas in the city. There were also hardly any birds. I started thinking about urbanization, the fact that we cover our planet in concrete, that we exclude nature from our daily life and that we forget what the planet used to be like, the fact that we get used to our concrete surroundings and that we take them for granted.
‘LIVE AND LET DIE’ is a book with photographs and text, in which photos tell the story about a city where nature is banned and the text tells the story about a person that can’t get used to the concrete in such a city. The cover was handmade with concrete and an iron spring, a physical experience of the heaviness of urbanization and the fragility of the protagonist when you hold the book in your hands.
