The Museo di Roma in Trastevere dedicates an exhibition to Ara Güler (1928-2018), from 2 June - 20 September.
Güler was ranked one of the seven best photographers in the world by the British Journal of Photography Yearbook and was the recipient of the prestigious title of Master of Leica.
The exhibition is composed largely of photographs of Istanbul taken by Güler since the 1950s, the decade in which he was recruited by Henri Cartier-Bresson for the Magnum Agency and became its correspondent for the Near East.
A lucid observer of Turkish history and society, the Armenian photographer bequeathed an archive of over two million photos, some of which can be seen in Rome.
In addition to the 45 black and white views of Istanbul, there are also 37 portraits of well known cultural, political and religious figures including Federico Fellini, Sophia Loren, Pope Paul VI and Winston Churchill.
