Photographer's Note

A handsome Cadillac, one of the many "killers" on exhibit at Rahmi Koç Industry Museum in Istanbul. The natural counter light was too harshly reflecting, too difficult a situation for taking photos, and i couldn't use fill flash as well. I like the wide angle result so much that, i wanted to share it before completing my Croatia series. I count six of me reflecting on its shining waxy-schamy frame, maybe you can find more rigolettos...

The title is inspired by Korkut, who resembled it to a roaring monster :)

The museum is set in an Ottoman-period building, an 18th century factory which produced anchors and their chains. It was recently converted, although has retained many of its original features, and restored by Rahmi Koc, who is one of Turkey’s most powerful industrialists. It was essentially done so he could house his private collection of models, machines and vehicles which he had collected from all over Europe, and exhibits include original penny-farthing bicycles, a ship’s bridge, and an engine from the Kalender steam ferry.
