photography and film – facts, ideas, values

PHOTOGRAPHER Ara Guler ~ The Eye of Istanbul

I had intended to post more on individual photographers – either who I knew about already or who were new to me – as much as on films and film subjects. Ara Guler comes into the second category.

Now is the time to catch up a bit.

This article in Middle East Eye profiles the man and includes a couple examples of his work in the text, a trailer for a documentary,  The Eye of Istanbul: The Life and Photographs of Ara Guler, and a further selection of his work in a slide show.
