WHAT IS NATURAL IN PHTOGRAPHY
Nature will be the last issue for Bosphorus Art Project Quarterly. This is a sad day, but also one filled with hope. It’s important to know when to move on in life. I have enjoyed so much working on this journal for the last seven years. It has been a sincere pleasure corresponding with amazing writers and artists and reading submissions from around the world.
Thanks goes out to the original editorial board Zeynep Kiliç, Aydın Bal, Özgür Soğancı, and webmaster Sinan Yucel for getting the journal off the ground. A very special thanks to Kevin Roberson for the current site’s design, to Nathan Hall, the current webmaster who has stuck by us, to Sharon Suzuki-Martinez, the long time poetry editor, who I believe really brought Bap Quarterly into its own. Thanks also to Reader and Editor Renee Targos and Assistant Poetry Editor MaryAnn Moenck and to the current issue’s Poetry Editor David Salner. All of the above mentioned have worked very hard on this journal without any payment. Also special thanks to Chong Ho Alex Yu, Michael Aanji Crowley, and Farras Abdelnour for their frequent contributions. The creativity, hard work, and professionalism of all people involved have made this project such a wonderful journey.
For all the faithful readers of BAP Quarterly, I appreciate your loyalty and support through the years. The website will remain up with the current and past issues. Please share with others and keep a look out for our future endeavors. This was an important project for all of us. We are taking a break, but will keep you informed of our upcoming group or individual projects.
