I sent Meral a postcard for her Istanbul mail art project and in reply she sent me a photo from her own camera.
I went to Istanbul many years ago and perhaps time has romanticised it. I loved it at the time. I remember that. I kept all the tickets and memorabilia, intending to use it creatively. Life, travel, family - the moment - meant that I carried around the box of stuff without even looking into it. The mail art call took me into the box. Meral's piece creates a mood that is certainly at odds with my memory but that doesn't diminish its impact! Thank you Meral.
