Now you have two reasons to visit Istanbul’s beautiful landmark the Galata Tower: to see the Golden Horn from high up above, and to experience the Istanbul of 60-70 years ago from the eyes of the late photography legend Ara Guler.
The Ara Guler Museum has reopened after being closed for months due to the pandemic. It now offers two exhibits: one that brings together a famous photographer with a prominent Turkish writer, and the other comprises photos of Istanbul.
An auction, organised by Istanbul Muzayede, will take place online at 8pm Turkish time on July 12, 2020. The job lot will comprise forty six prints of the legendary photojournalist, who died in 2018 at the age of 90.
London’s famed Saatchi Gallery is showcasing works by the late Turkish photographer Ara Guler until May 5.
Ara Guler started his career as a photographer when he joined a local Turkish newspaper called Yeni Istanbul in 1950. He has photographed many famous figures including Winston Churchill, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali in his storied career.
