Photographing Artisans in the Heart of Istanbul

This photo tour blends street photography and documentary photography for photographers who would like to add more in-depth stories to their portfolios. We will be walking in the back-streets of Istanbul but focusing more on the daily routines of the locals rather than the well-known monuments or attractions. In the old city of Istanbul, there are still a few craftsmen left who are working as casters, (casting & molding) and brass polishers in traditional ways. Ateliers of these craftsmen are located inside the hundred years old ‘Hans (inns)’ also known as caravanserai which was acting as accommodation, of the Ottoman Era.

These artisans, craftsmen, such as casters and polishers, whose practices are fading in the face of modernization are rare find. If you want to catch these artisans working with traditional casting and molding methods, you must contact me in advance so that I can guarantee this activity.
