I’ve been spending time in Mugla recently and spending most of it with Erdinç Özal, who is a living legend in Muğla. He was born here 47 years ago and after university returned to become a photographer. We walked the streets with him yesterday and it seemed around every corner there was someone he knew.

His fascination with Muğla hasn’t abated over the years, indeed as we walked he constantly shot images with his Canon 7D. He took us to visit the recently restored hamam in the old quarter where I shot these images with the E-P2.
