A Turkish man recently committed a terrible crime while pretending he wanted to take some selfies. He made his pregnant wife think they were about to take some snaps on a 1,000 feet (304m) tall cliff. When he lured her to the cliff’s edge, he pushed her down straight to her death.
Wedding photographer Onur Albayrak from the eastern Turkish province of Malatya has recently beaten up a groom. He learned that the bride-to-be was only 15 years old, which resulted in a fight and him breaking the groom’s nose.

Inspired by Edwin Abbat’s “Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions”, Turkish artist Aydin Büyüktaş created these exquisite warped images of Istanbul.

Equipped with a Panasonic GH3 and a GoPro 3, director and photographer, Leonardo Dalessandri spent 20 days exploring Turkey, travelling over 3500 km and documenting his experience along the way. The result is this incredible 3 1/2 minute long perspective of Turkey that handily trumps the stock footage travel videos that are oh-so-common these days.
Aspiring filmmakers should be taking a few notes as Dalessandri demonstrates his editing skills and post production prowess. Not to mention the wickedly brilliant sound design that went in to the short film with a little help via contributions from musician Ludovico Einaudi, and voice over actress, Meryem Aboulouafa.
