Bostanci

January 2012 • Found their photos scattered around a busy traffic intersection in the Bostanci district on the Asian side of Istanbul. There were hundreds of them, and I started imagining scenarios for what might've led to their rude dispersal: a car accident, a family quarrel, an estate clearance. Dodged traffic for 10 minutes trying to salvage the most interesting shots. A few other passersby also started picking them up, and together we looked for clues on the back of each photo. Years were handwritten on most, but not many names. These people appear to be kind. I'd like to know more about the baby bath, the beach picnic, the Xmas toast, the statue. Hope they won't mind if I give them another shot at immortality. (Thanks to Andy for the scans, to Eva for showing me how to appreciate other people's pictures, and to Tayfun Serttas for his extraordinary, inspiring Foto Galatasaray project: http://tayfunserttas.com/works/foto_galatasaray.html
