Ara Güler is a renowned photojournalist who captured the essence of Turkey and the world beyond. The exhibition A Play of Light and Shadow shows both iconic and unknown parts of Güler's oeuvre. The show serves as a testament to Turkey's rich history and offers a glimpse into the ever-evolving Turkish identity.
Through four sections, The Iconic, The Historic, The Ambassador, and The Personal, the visitor is immersed in Güler’s photographic practice from his iconic work as a photojournalist to his remarkable experimental work. His evocative black-and-white photographs show his profound love for Istanbul and Turkey. The exhibition will also be accompanied by the eponymous publication A Play of Light and Shadow, with contributions from several specialists in the field.
