Photography: Digital on Paper.
Ani, an ancient city of over 100,000 renowned for its splendour and magnificence, used to be the capital of Armenia until the 14th century when it was destroyed by an earthquake and then abandoned. It is now on the Turkish side of the sensitive Turkey-Armenia border. During the Cold War it was off limits as it was a military zone. Recently, rennovations got underway at Ani, with the result being the fragile church and mosque structures being propped up and fortified with cement. Ani as it was during the past seven centuries, is no more.
Whilst in my work I use digital Canons and Nikons and Fujis and the out-of-camera files are being put through Lightroom and Photoshop, I always limit post-processing to the absolute minimum, in an attempt to retain as much as possible of the original atmosphere. To put it in another way, what you see is largely what I saw and experienced in real life at the time the original photograph was taken.
