Old İstanbul Photographs Collection
The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Old İstanbul Photographs Collection spans the 19th and 20th centuries. It features over 7.000 photographs taken by photography artists such as Caranza, Robertson, Pascal Sébah, Kargopoulo, Sébah & Joaillier, Abdullah Biraderler, Gülmez Biraderler, Ali Sami Aközer, and Ali Enis Oza, as well as those taken by amateur enthusiasts. The photographs not only give us an idea of the physical and socio-cultural structure of the city at the time, but also allow a glimpse of many of the city’s beauties now lost or changed beyond recognition.
