Conspicuous consumption, irresponsible greed and drug-taking are often thought of somehow as part of the 80s. The situation is a little different for the adult teenagers of Avalon − they’ve never left the eighties or their hedonistic lifestyles. Club promoter Janne has just finished serving time with an ankle bracelet and has reunited with his former business partner Klas. He is looking forward to the launch of their new high-end night club, Avalon. Janne is constantly accompanied by his recently divorced older sister Jackie. She tries to keep up the good spirit, recounting her brother’s career as a nightclub owner, realtor and general man about town. The good times seem to have returned, but when an unfortunate catastrophe occurs, Janne’s new life and nightclub dreams seem to be indefinitely put on hold.
Following the opening of his studio, “El Chark Societe Photographic,” on Beyoğlu’s Postacılar Caddesi in 1857, the Levantine-descent Pascal Sébah moves to yet another studio next to the Russian Embassy in 1860 with a Frenchman named A. Laroche, who, apart from having worked in Paris previously, is also quite familiar with photographic techniques.
