Curated by Bursa-born Engin Özendes, the exhibition, which will display over 100 images and documents, will show how İstanbul has changed through the eyes of Armenian photographers, based on three different periods over the past 150 years.
The earliest photographs exhibited focus on a period dominated by the ethnically Armenian Ottoman Abdullah brothers, who were instrumental in the birth of Turkish photography, as well as the likes of Pascal Sebah (Sebah & Joaillier) Mihran İranyan, Aşil Samancı (Ateliers Apollon) and Boğos Tarkulyan (Photographie Phebus).
Özendes also presents an in-depth display of the post-1950 works of globally acclaimed İstanbul-born photographer, Ara Güler. Of Armenian ancestry, Güler’s striking İstanbul shots, such as that of Armenian fishermen at Kumkapı taken in 1952, have marked him as one of the foremost figures in international creative photography. A collection that represents the works of more recent and present day Turkish-born photographers, including Ani Çelik Arevyan, Garbis Özatay, Garo Miloşyan, Manuel Çıtak, Sarkis Baharoğlu, Silva Bingaz, Vasgen Değirmentaş and Yaşar Saraçoğlu, will also be showcased.
