This is a small selection of photos from my return home to Bodrum, a seaside town in southern Turkey. I use the word “home” loosely because it’s not the town I grew up in, but it’s where my family congregates every August. It’s also where I spent all summers between school years processing what had happened over the past twelve months, so I guess in a sense it really is where I did my growing up. Going back to Bodrum always feels like a return to childhood, to the most familiar and comforting part of my life. ♦
