Title: Re: Carbon Workshop in Turkey

You are right. Loris was a real prince of a host. But all of the Medici were princes, right? Or cardinals or bishops or bankers to the kings of France.

In any event I spent the morning developing some of my film and I do have a few very nice negatives to print.

I just returned from a two week trip to Istanbul where, among other
things, I taught a three-day workshop on carbon printing. There were
some twelve or so participants in the workshop, which stretched the
limits of the locale, but the participants were highly motivated and
worked very hard. Thanks to the use of digital negatives all of the
participants managed to make at least one good carbon print.

I also visited the exhibitions there of my own work and that of other
photographers, including that of our own Keith G. I was really amazed
at the scope of the Bienal and was very impressed with the ability of
IFSAK to pull off such a comprehensive event.

While there I had a chance to venture outside of Istanbul for some
photographic work. One of the highlights was a visit to a 6th century
Orthodox monastery literally carved out of a rock hill. Hard to
imagine how much work that involved. Also on the itinerary was a
visit to a Black Sea fishing village and a short stay in Edirne,
which included lodging in a converted Karavansaray, used in former
times for overnight protection of traveling merchants.

Thanks to Loris Medici and other members of IFSAK for making this
such a pleasant and enriching experience for me.
