Photographer's Note

The construction of the fortress of Rumelihisari in 1452, on the European side of the Bosphorus and at the strait's narrowest point, would become a sort of prequel for the siege of Constantinople the following year. Sultan Mehmet II, seeking a strategy to overtake the well-fortified capital of the Byzantines, wanted to cut off access to Constantinople and prevent supplies and reinforcments from reaching the city.

After the capture of Constantinople, Rumelihisari was used as a checkstation for passage through the Bosphorus, then served as a prison, and during the 1800's a neighborhood developed within it. Eventually the neighborhood was cleared, and the fortress underwent a 5 year restoration, opening as a museum in 1960.
