    “Silent Overseer” - Turkey
    As the golden hour casts a warm glow, a workshop comes to life through silhouettes. Among the fragmented stories told by shadows, a cat moves with stealthy grace atop the window ledge, as if supervising the humans below. The figures are engaged in their tasks—each absorbed in their work, unaware of the quiet observer above. This moment, frozen in time, might be named “Silent Overseer,” capturing the quiet coexistence of different forms of life within a shared space, all under the watchful eyes of the feline silhouette. © Ayhan Canatan

    I caught a train uptown on my way to see the St. Patrick’s Day parade. I’ve passed by this scene a thousand times, and each time, my subconscious beckoned me louder.
