EXPLORING ISTANBUL CITY WALLS WITH METIN ÇAVUŞ

May 12, Sunday
Yapı Kredi bomontiada

Applications to join the Exploring Istanbul Walls with Metin Çavuş are now open.

DETAILS

Is it possible to present the complex and multi-patterned structure metropolises offer us via photography? In the history of photography, one can talk about various approaches to reflect the cities and the cultural ecosystems they inhabit. What is certain is that it requires artistic and intellectual creativity to do so.

In order to create a conceptual framework, this workshop will present, study and compare works of important photographers that have worked in the field of urban photography after the 1970s and chosen Istanbul as a subject. Afterwards, a study will be in order to see how this visual stratification has taken place in the neighbourhood of Bomonti, where a significant urban transformation has taken place and how to reflect this. We will be walking along a predetermined route through Bomonti and discuss how urban space visualisation can be applied to different scenarios. Finally, we will convene in the studio to evaluate each photograph from the excursion.

Humanity has documented every moment since the invention of recordable light. Born into a digital culture, how much does the new generation know about recording light?

Embracing the motto ‘Don’t think about the rules, shoot free’, we will first discuss the rules of light and provide some elementary knowledge about photography and how photographs come to be. Then, we will examine how we can break these rules with Lomography and push our creativity in the right direction.

After the conceptual tutorial, we will be taking photographs with the Lomography machines at the festival arena. The workshop fee includes the disposal of the machines and the film. The films will not be developed during the day of the workshop. Participants are welcome to request the films to be developed by the Lomography team in exchange for an additional cost.

Ozge Karadag has been organizing and teaching workshops and has been a guest tutor in the Lomography Academy since 2012. She is currently studying Visual Communications at Bilgi University.

With a rich history dating back several centuries, analogue photography is a tradition that encourages us to record each moment and discover our creativity.

This workshop will touch upon the daguerreotype process and the birth of photography before exploring the history of the Lomography movement, which was fuelled by the love of analogue photography in the early 1990s. The workshop will also focus on the current status of the movement as well as the creative perspective it brought to analogue photography.

Following the conceptual tutorial, workshop participants will take photographs with Lomography cameras in the festival arena. The workshop fee includes the use of the cameras and the film. The films will not be developed during the day of the workshop. Participants are welcome to request that the films be developed by the Lomography team in exchange for an additional cost.

Once playing a vital role in protecting the city, the 22-kilometre long Istanbul city walls are more than mere monuments to the past. This stone girdle that divides the city presents a different kind of habitat to its urbanised surroundings, with its uncontrolled environment for weeds to grow in and the farmland that adjoins it. Erected during Byzantine times, even though the walls are considered to belong to a district of the city centre, since they have remained rather ‘silent’ during the massive transformation city has recently undergone, they offer a transition space for a multitude of different experiences.

This workshop offers an exploration route along the walls to take photographs. Significant features such as dungeons, towers and gates will be examined on site. Farms, orchards and urban transformation sites along the walls will also be visited and explained. We will also apply a variety of different approaches to photographing the walls.
