Photographer's Note

One year ago, on 17.10.2018 he passed away…

His name is Ara Güler.

Absolutely "the" photographer of Turkey and the World.
Born 1928 in İstanbul; most probably he was born with a camera in his hands.
He never called himself a "photographer". He preferred the title "photojournalist".

And I was quite lucky to be with him in some of his long walks, with his Leica in hand; here in Turkey or also somewhere Europe.

He was the only Turkish photographer bearing the title “Master of Leica”.
I'd made this capture in his office in Galatasaray at the Pera district of İstanbul in his Office – atelier.

This entry is been scanned from a b&w print.

May his soul rest in peace.
