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!)
