  1. Göknar, E, "The Light of the Bosphorus: Photography in Orhan Pamuk's 'Balkon'", Los Angeles Review of Books (May, 2019), Los Angeles Review of Books .
    (last updated on 2021/06/16)

    ORHAN PAMUK’S PHOTOGRAPHS emerge from a specific and recurring moment. As much as they capture subtle aspects of Istanbul geography in and around the iconic confluence of the Bosphorus and the Golden Horn, they also reveal the moments when the writer stops writing and is drawn away from his desk. Taken during a period of self-described dissatisfaction with his work — perhaps verging on writer’s block — these images are linked obliquely to novel-writing.
