Mihriban, a Turkish girl’s name, means “good friend, with a good heart and a laughing face”; it’s also the title of a well-known love song in Turkey. And this book is Swiss photographer Linda Herzog’s love song to the country she lived in from 2004-2007. The 50 color photographs chosen from her Turkish journeys prove her to be an acute observer whose vision is unclouded by romantic notions and touristic illusions; she depicts the juxtapositions of a modern nation with a deep, soulful past. Includes a fine interview with Martin Jaeggi.
