Tour of the Espas Photo Bookstore in Istanbul with Huseyin Yilmaz

One of the things I love most about traveling is checking out photo bookstores and meeting new people. Istanbul was no exception.

Charlie Kirk introduced me to Huseyin Yilmaz, a photographer and a lover of photo books. A few years back, he quit his old job to start a photo bookstore (named Espas) to spread the love of photography with the community. I didn’t show in the video very much, but he also opened up a small gallery for young and up-and-coming artists to showcase their work right across the street.

Huseyin is also coordinating the Bursa Photo Festival, September 15-21. You can find out more information about the festival here.

If you want to stay updated, follow the Bursa Photo Festival on Facebook and Twitter.
