From Konstantiniyye to Istanbul

Photographs of the Anatolian Shore of the Bosphorus from the mid XIXth Century to XX Century

21 January - 01 April 2012

The exhibition showcased works by masters of photography, who practiced their art in İstanbul from the end of the XIXth to the early years of the XXth century. Comprised from a selection of photographs from the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Photograph Collection and from private collections, it revealed the magnificent structures, daily life and intriguing personalities of an İstanbul past. İstanbul has evolved into an industrial city, an enormous metropolis: its silhouette, architecture, vehicles, bridges, quays, streets and public spaces have attained an entirely different appearance. Masters such as Ali Sami Aközer, Félice Beato, Guillame Berggren, Abdullah Biraderler, Gülmez Biraderler, Ernest Edouard de Caranza, Sebah & Joaillier, Maurice Meys, Ali Enis Oza, James Robertson and Elisa Pante Zonaro document the nostalgic images of the city during their time, taking us on a pleasurable journey through the photographs they took in the difficult and challenging techniques of the time.
