Artistic photo documentary by Simone Haug: Carpet restoration in Istanbul

Carpets from all over the world are restorated at Bab-ı Ali Caddesi No 8 in Istanbul. This old house contains over thirty restoration workshops, each of them ist specialized in a technique or a type of carpet. Interested in the different attitudes towards the authors works (the carpets) in the restoration processes, Simone Haug passed several weeks in these workshops. ‘I have been working on the artistic documentary on carpet restoration in Istanbul between November and December 2013’ said Simone Haug to Jozan Magazine.

Simone Haug was born 1981 in Bern, Switzerland and studied Sociology and visual Anthropology in Bern and Paris and photography at the Art Academy in Hamburg.  Now she is living in Bern and Hamburg, working on long term projects in the artistic-documentary-field, at home and abroad. Examples of her photographic black and white art works can be found at her website www.simonehaug.com.
