For Sale, Unauthorized is a selection of photos by photographer Metehan Ozcan documenting an apartment kept for twelve years as an untouched shrine to dead man. Metehan says that:
This two-story building was for sale by landlord's son in 2004. His father had passed away in 1992, and he was keeping the flat untouched. Like the family albums being sold at second-hand dealer, privacy of a man thins here.From the abandoned dishes in the sink to the dated and dusty crockery on the shelves, Metehan has captured the ineffable sadness of a place where the spirit of a person remains, barely, in the everyday possessions they left behind.
