Balkon's images capture one of the central cruxes of Pamuk's work:
a sustained interest in distances.--Kaya Gen "Art in America "
Balkon, the Turkish word for balcony, is a mediation on the city where Pamuk was born in 1952. Taken over a five-month period beginning in late 2012, the 600 pictures of ancient monuments, wooded isles and cloud-laden skies only hint at the chaos of Istanbul, which has served as a central character in much of the novelist's work.--Ayla Jean Yackley "Art Newspaper "
The photographs, arranged often in a series of two to eight per page, convey an affective aura.--Erdag G knar "Los Angeles Review of Books "
