This photo essay was captured on photographer Kamilla Musland’s recent trip to Turkey in July, all shot on 35mm film.
“My favourite images were shot in the city of Izmir where I spent several days going up a big hill exploring the less touristy area. Kids were playing in the streets, groups were mingling and couples were sitting outside after a long day. I wanted to capture the everyday life of ordinary people, the small moments, because these are what matters. I think in life we always work towards big goals, to reach certain milestones, and we forget to appreciate where we are right now. These people who probably had a lot less in possessions and materiel items, had so much more appreciation for life itself, and that is what my camera was drawn to.” — Kamilla Musland
