Children raising flares during the championship win celebrations of football club Beşiktaş Istanbul. Captured in May 2016.
Beşiktaş supporters had to wait for seven years until their club brought home the Turkish championship trophy before city rivals Fenerbahçe. We could not get tickets for the match so we watched the decisive game in the centre of Beşiktaş neighbourhood Çarşı. I knew that Beşiktaş supporters had the reputation of being Istanbul's craziest fans but what I saw that night was simply unbelievable. Flares and fireworks being sold like candy on the street, small children on the shoulders of their parents and grandparents dancing in the street. This photo captures the start of the party after Marcelo scored the 1:0 against Osmanlıspor.
This photograph will be printed on highest quality Giclée Fine Art paper (Hahnemühle Pearl) by my trusted printing company based in London. The chosen paper creates really natural black and white images and offers vibrant colour reproduction and great detail. The paper is resin coated with a fibrous feel. The satin finish of the resin coating gives depth to the image which combined with the texture and vibrant colour reproduction gives the image the feel of an oil painting. It is one of the most suitable Fine Art papers for mounting.
