Dear ATA-DC Members and Friends,
We are delighted to announce that ATA-DC is a supporting partner of the upcoming photo exhibition of Ara Güler, who is an internationally known Turkish photographer who calls himself a "visual historian". The exhibit will take place at the Freer Sackler Gallery between December 14 2013 - May 14, 2014.
Ara Güler, known as the “Eye of Istanbul,” is famous for his iconic snapshots of the city in the 1950s and '60s. But with an archive of more than 800,000 photographs, Güler's body of work contains far more than these emblematic images.
In December 2013, the Freer and Sackler Galleries will open an exhibition of never-before-shown works by the legendary photographer. Curated by Johns Hopkins University students in partnership with the museums, the installation will examine Güler's definition of himself as a photojournalist through the presentation of his photographs.
Stay tuned for more details!
ATA-DC Board of Directors
