A new place for photography: İstanbul Fotoğraf Galerisi /The Photographers’ Gallery İstanbul
Our new gallery will host qualified and contemporary photograph exhibitions from master photographers, besides up and coming photo artists. The gallery will also organise panels, demonstrations, workshops and seminars from reputable artists and lecturers. Istanbul Fotoğraf Galerisi aims to create a living art space and promote the art of photography in all parts of society.
In this context, the gallery’s opening exhibition will be Timurtaş Onan’s “Terk edilmiş/Abandoned” in Beyoğlu, the heart of the city’s art scene. Those interested in photography can visit the exhibition between February 2nd and March 14th.

In his exhibition “Terk edilmiş / Abandoned”, Onan takes a bold approach to narrate the silent atmosphere of some of Istanbul’s most significant historical and cultural assets Haliç and Camiialtı dockyards, just before the mega affects of urban regeneration take effect.
