Here is my photo projection at Recyclart Portfolio Turquie. Two super8 footages and a selection of street photography were projected. Super8 footages are from my flea market hunts. Both are dated from early 70s and were shot by tourists that visit Turkey. I have digitalised the super8 reels and edited them. For the first one I used a soundtrack from Orkestra Keyif that is found on Free Music Archive. For the latter Grup Ses Beats had a funky mix. During the projection Guillaume Le Boisselier & Margarida Guia have performed a soundscape. 150 people were present to see the projection. The photography is from analogue cameras only with using expired film as the medium. Most of them are shot by Lubitel 166U. Films are developed and scanned in a pro lab (Limelight) in Brussels. Photos are taken between 2008-2011 in Istanbul and Izmir.
I am hunting for old, dusty super8 film reels of amateur travelers.
Here is one dated 1971, a Belgian family (I suppose) travelled to Turkey between 1-5 April 1971. They start their trip in Ankara in Ataturk boulevard. They stay at Grand Ankara Hotel. Then they travel by car to the Anatolia and visit Cappodocia. Their next step is Istanbul, where they make sightseeings including a Bosphorus tour, Galata tower and old peninsula. They stay at the Hilton Hotel. The family eventually travels to Jerusalem from Istanbul.
The super8 film was telecined by Studio Bidav in Istanbul. Yes, I know the quality is not that good.
I have performed the montage in iMovie.
Once again, I would like say:
long live super8
long live Turkey
tunes by Orchestra Keyif
