An Hour Before
An Hour Before
Thailand and Turkey, 2017-2018
I shot An Hour Before at dawn on the crowded beaches of Turkey and Thailand.
There are no tourists in the photos, but their presence is noticeable everywhere: paint on the structures is worn out, clothes and towels are hanging on empty sun loungers, and footprints are visible on the sand.
Morning silence is only a short pause. In an hour, people will be fighting for free chaise lounges and lining up for drinks. The air will be filled with multilingual buzz.
