A portfolio in a book format, comprising thirty-six photographs and an accompanying text. The prevailing sentiment here is silence, broken with simple questions and worries about history being erased aggressively and future is being built on the ghost of a past. Cultural geography is visualized through mute photographs of disappearing urban architecture; silence and muteness are treated like covert protestations, and simple observations of decay are transformed into a fount eternal truths.

Faruk Ulay was born in Istanbul, Turkey in 1957. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Design from The State Academy of Fine Arts, he completed his Master of Arts degree in Visual Communications in Goldsmiths’ College in London, England. In 1982, he moved to the United States and established a design studio in Pasadena, California, where he focuses on authoring purely text-based, literary works as well as engaging text and visuals to create interdisciplinary, multi-layered projects.

In addition to his work that incorporates both the visual and the textual, Faruk Ulay has written eight volumes of short stories, two novels, and one non-fiction work–a design manifesto. His literary fiction appear regularly in literary and cultural journals in Turkey, in the United States, and in Canada.
