In the old city of Ankara, Huseyin Kaya and Baki Alkan make a living of tin plating, a dying profession in Turkey. Copper utensils are traditionally plated with tin, a non-toxic metal, to assure food safety.

Excellent photos !!!!

When I was a child, gypsy women used to come to our quarter in İstanbul to tin plate, in a corner of a street. They don´t visit our quarter any more but I guess they still do in other places.

Nothing remains the same, dear Meltem, only memories stay.
