21 imagesI was introduced to Istanbul through the Turkish author Ohran Pamuk in my teenage years. His books painted images of Istanbul in my head. Years later I decided to go there and see if these images existed in real life.
15 imagesStevens Dream Los Molinos, northern California. – My priorities in life is hunting, work and school. Steven Pitter is 17 years old and a junior at the local high school. – I have bad grades so I was held back one year. That is why I am still a junior. I would really like to be a senior this year so I could get done with school and start working, he says. Stevens mom is worried his son might drop out of school – He thinks school is unnecessary for him. That he can find work without it. Im trying to convince him that he needs to get in to college to get a good job, she says. – Hunting is all I really would like to do. Every weekend this fall I’ve been driving down south to sit in a duck blind for two days. I sleep in my truck during the nights. When I am there I think about life and what I would like to do with it, then I drive back to Los Molinos and go to school on Monday morning again. It takes me half week to gain back the sleep I lost over the weekend, Seven says.
