Name: Mehmet Turgut Country: Türkey Occupation: Photographer
What can you tell us about yourself?
I am a Photographer!
How do you like analogue photography?
I was in dark room for 9 years and developing and printing photos. I cant say it was fun in that years but now it is like going to a antique shop and buying an old photograph.
How was playing with La Sardina after digital cameras?
It was like a dream about my chilhood days
Do you use any other analogue objects (notebook, LPs, etc)?
I have a dark room, enlargers, an LP player and LPs. And now I have Lomo cameras.
How do you describe Lomography?
Couple years ago after my father had came back from a fair in Germany he told me “a company has colorful cameras which change the pictures”. It was the first impression for me about Lomography
Which is your favorite shot with La Sardina?
I guess the one when Deniz Akkaya trying to calm her daughter down when she is crying. And also my self-portrait and my cats’ photos.
Any new projects?
I will have a book called “30” which’s editor is Yekta Kopan and I am thinking about a photography workshop in 2013.
Where do you want to be and what would you like to do now?
I am always in where I want to be and and doing what I want to do!

Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.

He will respectfully ask for a photo session. He does not outline why, and if you are shy, you will wonder what he has seen in you. He greets reluctance with understanding and a resounding yes with an equal amount of enthusiasm. When the day comes, he will treat you like a collaborator. And whenever he talks about the outcome—comely photos of what looks like your most confident self—he will always call you a muse.
