what is sayfiye.

Is the beach, is the window with wide frames, the old or the young, is the cat and the dog, is the fit, is being from any religion, is the aunt, is the evening coffee, is gushing gardens and is exceptionally beautifully cutlery voices on balconies. ​ Is the sun to the orient, is to feel familiar even if you are not, is getting together to chat, is the internal refreshment, is the tolerance, where you feel yourself most comfortable, is to turn home, is a feeling that you can not find its synonym in any other language.


Is this and that, but none of these.

It is a platform to record the urban change that has taken place around Bağdat Avenue located in Istanbul, with audio-visual tools. It especially focuses on the radical urban transformation that has taken place in recent years. It is not only about the buildings that are being demolished, the change includes everything in the extension of nature and man. With our cameras, we search for everything that has been replaced, worthwhile to be investigated and we pursue the lost.


It is also an attempt to bring the atmosphere of Bağdat Avenue, which in the past has been a quite special place used as a summer resort of the city of Istanbul, to the present day.
