Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

The Man who showed us Instanbul...

Such a fantastic Article in today’s NY Times ~ 1 November
by the great Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk on his friend Ara Guler... the ever so Brilliant Photographer

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/01/o...-istanbul.html


Telenous here on RFf had a recent thread on Ara’s passing
with links to Magnum & NYTimes obituary

Great photographs and article Helen. Ara Guler was a survivor with enormous courage and skill.

Thanks for the heads-up, Helen

Poignant story with some really great photographs, the photographer was talented in his craft to the extreme.
Shame on how those Seljuk Turks kept on harassing their minority non-Muslim citizens, as reported in that article, but the great photos spoke for themselves, regardless .

Thanks, Helen. I also saw the article this morning by Orhan Pamuk. I love Ara Guler's photographs and have a number of his books. He was among a handful of great photographers who conveyed a strong sense of place and captured the universal in the local. A very great photographer who I will miss.
