ARA GÜLER: ARMENIAN FISHERMEN AT KUMKAPI
by Ara Güler
The book is a reprint in three languages of photojournalist Ara Güler's newspaper serial entitled "Armenian Fishermen at Kumkapi". The series appeared from May 21 to 26, 1952, in Armenian Jamanak newspaper. Twelve photos were used in this newspaper serial over six days. Here in this book, in addition to those twelve pictures, 56 photos provided from Güler's archives were also included for the purpose of reflecting the testament in its entirety. The visual materials reveal the lifestyle that has so recently disappeared due to the huge and rapid changes to the features of Istanbul and Kumkapi, and transport these traces of the past fifty years to the present time. Turrkish and English texts have been translated from the Armenian text. Turkish words in the original text have been indicated in italics in the translated version.
