Kiev to Istanbul

Kiev, Odessa, Evpatoria, Yalta, Simferopol, Istanbul: Kiev...a dark, concrete pulse...Odessa...home to a criminal energy and bright light, sharp like a razor...we pass through unkempt, dormant, windswept crimean seaside resorts, industry lining the periphery. The grey veil of a communist past still hangs over everything. From Simferopol to Istanbul all changes, colour and life spill back onto the pavements, but the journey unifies the images.
