ara güler’s photography

I fell in love with the black & white series from Istambul by Ara Güler. There are dozens more where these came from!  Mr. Güler has been famously photographing his native country for a long time (he’s 83 years old), often being called “the Eye of Istambul.”

I’m amazed by the depth of these photographs, and by the genuine capture of scenes from daily life. They make us feel transported both in time and location.

Enjoy!
