My friend, photographer Chris Herwig, is in town from Liberia to shoot for a coffee table book, so we've been playing around a lot. I took him on my best tour of the Grand Bazaar (also known as "the parts that don't suck").
Then I realized, I can do a coffee table book too! At first, it was just going to be limited to kokoreçi , artists whose media are stuffed lamb intestines, but then I decided that since I have so many photos of tripe, I shouldn't take such a narrow approach.
Here's a sampling. Don't steal this idea, k?
I am sure some İşkembe and Kelle Paça partisans out there will explain at length the pros and cons of each type of tripe. Be sure to read the comments for that discussion. You wouldn't want to miss it.
