Welcome to the Strait of Bosphorus, one of the world’s busiest marine pathways, beset by at least 50,000 international ships and tankers every year. Navigating this narrow and twisting strait while avoiding the small vessels ferrying passengers across is not easy, and small accidents are frequent and almost unavoidable. Claire Jager captures the efforts of the pilots, crews, and Vessel Traffic Services who work tirelessly to keep a major disaster at bay, while highlighting the impact of the traffic and development on the waters and the environment around the strait.
