Photographer's Note

Doday i will start a short serie about the famous Beylebeyi Palace at Istanbul , Turkey
Beylerbeyi Palace on the Asiatic shore was built by Abdulaziz between the years 1861-1865. The architect was Sarkis Balyan, one member of the famous Balyan family, which gave nine reputed palaces to The Ottoman Empire over nearly a century. Serving under the six sultans, they were responsible for the westernization of the city's architecture.
The old palace had been built by Mahmut II, during the years 1826-1827 but the building was damaged during a fire.
Beylerbeyi Palace served as a summer residence. There are many architectural resemblances between this building and the Dolmabahce Palace.

This is The Blue Room.
