“During my eight years of going to the Keskin’s for supper I was able to squirrel away 4,213 of Füsun’s cigarette butts. Each one of these had touched her rosy lips and entered her mouth, some even touching her tongue and becoming moist, as I would discover when I put my finger on the filter soon after she had stubbed the cigarette out; the stubs, reddened by her lovely lipstick, bore the unique impress of her lips at some moment whose memory was laden with anguish or bliss, making these stubs artifacts of singular intimacy.”
― Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence

“sometimes she would stub it out with evident anger, sometimes with impatience. I had seen her stub out a cigarette in anger many times, and this caused me disquiet……This variety of methods ensured that every cigarette to leave her hand had its special shape, and its own soul.”

when I first read this book, I was so impressed with love and obsession in every words Mr.Pamuk described how Kemal felt towards Füsun. And as i had an idea to do a shoot I thought of Mai.It had to be her. So I asked her to join this project.
I found out later that there is a real museum of innocence in Istanbul inspired from this Pamuk’s novel.

“In poetically well built museums, formed from the heart’s compulsions, we are consoled not by finding in them old objects that we love, but by losing all sense of Time.”
― Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence

“When I was not at the house, Fusun would smoke her cigarettes almost down to the filter, as I could tell from those butts she left around the house before I arrived.I always knew which ones were hers, not by the brand but rather by the way she’d stubbed them out which bespoke her mood.”
― Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence

“She looked out the window; in her eyes was the light that you see only in children arriving at a new place, or in young people still open to new influences, still curious about the world because they have not yet been scarred by life.”
― Orhan Pamuk, The Museum of Innocence
