“Spanish photographer Jose Maria Mellado’s Enigmatic Landscapes, at Elipsis Gallery in Tophane, is his first solo show in Turkey. The color photographs in this appropriately-titled exhibit are a breathtaking collection of natural vistas in which humanity – or whatever scant traces exist of human habitation – is dwarfed by Mellado’s towering hillsides, deep ravines, and vertiginous plateaus. Even in a photograph of an ostensibly ordinary gas station / convenience store, the lowering clouds above are the photographer’s true focus” – guide istanbul.
