Ismet and Arif Laughing
After days of drawing in St John’s these guys seemed like old friends. A fine time drinking tea and laughing in the cicada-buzzing shade, Ramazan was over, they could drink tea and smoke, it was a party.
Karim Hanim worked as a maid her whole life. She’s now retired, surrounded by grandchildren in this little hill house. We visited her to celebrate the end of Ramazan, and she sat for this portrait.
