The Turkish on-line photo digest, Fotoritim, asked whether I would contribute 15 images from my portfolio Southeast Portraits. After I moved to Atlanta a year and a half ago I began to photograph the people of the Southeast. It was a way for me to connect to my new home. I have posted many of these portraits on my blog over the course of the last year. You can view my portfolio at Fotoritim at http://www.fotoritimdergi.com/beate-sass-guneydogu-portreleri as well as browse the photography by other Turkish photographers and artist’s from around the world.
