Memories Of Istanbul
Photograph - Film Photography
Taken outside the Sultan Ahmed Mosque (or The Blue Mosque) in Istanbul, Turkey. Spring 2010.
On the project: Memories/Dreams - "In the years 2010-11 I got the opportunity to travel around a bit. Naturally, I wanted to document my travels with my camera, but as I was getting ready for my first trip, I started thinking about my memories from other travels. I realised that my only very clear memories from those trips were those that had been caught on film; the rest were muddled up and hazy, more like a sense of a colour, a shape, a detail in a sea of movement. In my waking hours, I often have problems making out the difference between memories of real life and memories of dreams, and I decided I wanted to emulate this feeling in my photographs - not clear moments in time but rather a sense of the trip as a whole, captured in a few, dream-like images."
Taken on a medium format film camera, scanned in digitally.
