Ara Güler, il était une fois Istanbul
Samuel Aubin
2017 - 52 min - Video 4K - Couleur - France, Turquie

He is nicknamed "Istanbul's eye". Ara Güler is today 87 years old. The photographs that he has taken of his city have gone around the world for the last 50 years, and they make for an unrivalled visual memory. Ara Güler has also taken photographs of numerous events in Turkish political life. We have a look at his photographs, the great photographer tells their stories, their conceptions, and their historical and personal contexts.
In this way, from picture to picture, we can travel in black and white and in colour into his life, into Istanbul's story, Tukey's story, and the world of the last fifty years.
