From November 23, 2016 till January 9, 2017, the Leica Gallery in Wetzlar is presenting Leica Hall of Fame, an exhibition with photos by Ara Güler.
Painters, actors, photographers, musicians: during his long career, Güler has put together an impressive gallery of portraits of important artists and contemporaries; but for the photographer, Istanbul was always the star of the show. Without his pictures it would be virtually impossible to have the photographic impressions of Istanbul that we have today.
Like no other, Güler has been documenting the bustle of the big city, as well as the hidden everyday life of the inhabitants of this metropolis on the Bosporus, capturing atmospherically-laden compositions with his Leica since the 1950s.
