Old City exhibit

Ara Guler, the Turkish photography master’s exhibit named Old City in Istanbul’s Merkur Gallery with colorful views of the city which have not been showed together before, would stay open till Wednesday.

Istanbul, being the city of his birthplace as well as his dreams, Guler’s exhibit has a wide collection of pictures of the city – starting from wooden bay windowed house to fishing boats to bouldering streets to cobblestones pavements – a whole lot of scenes from this Turkish city could be spotted in this exhibit.

Guler told that if his photography of Istanbul had not existed, those old days, would have been forgotten today. There is nothing left from the Old City. The city’s aesthetic has altered. Civilization is going forward, but people have lost sense of beauty.

Following the fashion of great social documentary tradition, Ara Guler invariably intersects literature and cinema with each other in his snaps. He now has a distinguished spot in the world history of photograph. The Photography Annual Antalogy in the United Kingdom had declared him as one of best 7th photographers of world. In the year 1962, he accepted the title Master of Leica from Germany that was offered just to few photographers.

Meanwhile, it is really a happy new year at Belleville’s Kerr AT inverness architects. Susan Holland, the architect’s curator, stated that the library is still spinning from its 40th anniversary party this last October – the show must go on. The gallery would serve usher in new year with their 1st exhibit of 2014 titled Shot.
