I was going through the exhibitions in Istanbul Modern and I've run into this German photographer, Andreas Bursky. As it turns out, one of his photographs is the most expensive photo in the world (3.3 million dollars) and it's a picture of a 99 cent shop. (How ironic!) Here is the link: http://www.moma.org/exhibitions/2001/gursky/99cent_pop.htmlIt is said that his highly-detailed pictures show the effect of capitalism and globalism in a very subtle way. No wonder why I was reminded of this Istanbul picture of yours :)
I love your photograph Oliver. You are right even though it is kind of small on my screen, there is A LOT to take in... tons of details, did you ever get this printed??
I'm planning to. I'm right now waiting for some free sample prints from Westcoast Imaging. I heard they are doing a great job, but I'm undecided what technique to use fot this.
