Photographer's Note

This Kodachrome is one among my first pictures taken with the new Leica IIIf, which as everybody remembers was a legendary camera.. So I went in the back streets of Istanbul,and shot what seemed interesting to me in those days. This scene shows a poor neighbourhood in Tophane, near Galata, with some people occupied in their daily life. I am looking at this picture as if taken by someone else and there's no doubt that it's value is documentary rather than the composition and framing. The small street is still there but I doubt the wooden houses are.
