1 Mayıs

Bir Mayıs, the 1st of May. A journey through a chock-a-block full Taksim square on this international day for workers’ rights. Uplifting moments with an effervescent and dignified crowd in a loud, colourful and peaceful celebration of the people.

On duty for the first time in Turkey, the pictures are from my sturdy Minolta XE5 and its sweet Rokkor 28mm, exposing a dirty roll of Kodak Color Plus 200. Processed round the corner at Foto Sevda and brought to the screen through a cheap HP scanner (make do with what’s at hand!)

About seboseba

I grew up in Essex, I happen to be French and I love Turkey (the country), especially Istanbul, among other places, for having lived there. I studied European policies and communication, graduating with a MA in both (yep, studying is still almost free in France). I wrote a research dissertation on employee recognition, the origins of virtue and corporate social responsibility. I love photography (hence the blogging), European training courses, forum theatre, jazz, blues, rock music, hiking in the mountains, skiing. If I could choose, I'd be a student all my life, but that doesn't pay much! You might have guessed by now, I'm looking for a job, but communication looks like a dead end these days so maybe I'll watch Midnight Cowboy again and get inspired...:-)
