Elsa Bleda is a photographer and visual artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa. She has been taking photographs of Istanbul, Johannesburg and more; she has a distinct style that would immediately make you remind of Blade Runner. When you think of this movie, you would think about scenes from cities from Tokyo, Hong Kong and etc. But it's much more than that when you think of it, the same inspiration can also be taken from any cities around the world.
Mama Shelter, a whimsical brand of French hotels designed by the incomparable Philippe Starck, welcomes its fourth sibling with Mama Shelter Istanbul. I've had the opportunity to stay in the chain's chic Paris outpost and was overjoyed at every turn with the mix of wit and humor in the overall design. Mama Shelter Istanbul leaves no stone unturned and looks to be just as cool if not cooler than its 3 older sibs. If you have an upcoming trip to Istanbul on the docket I recommend you book your stay at this hip haven immediately if not sooner.
