Alper Yesiltas, photographer and lawyer based in Istanbul, Turkey, has been photographing this single window for the past 12 years – half of the time he’s been living in this metropole.

This was the window he was able to see from his home, so you can say the two became very familiar with each other. After all those years, the owner of the building containing this very window decided to demolish it, and Alper even caught the very moment it happened.

See all the ways he saw the window during the years below.
