FOTO GALATASARAY: Studio Practice by Maryam Sahinyan

Regular price $ 90.00 $ 0.00

Edited by Tayfun Serttas

The Foto Galatasaray project is based on the re-visualization of the complete professional archive of Maryam Sahinyan (Sivas, 1911 Istanbul, 1996), who worked as a photographer at her modest studio in Galatasaray, Beyoglu uninterruptedly from 1935 until 1985. The archive is a unique inventory of the demographic transformations occurring on the socio-cultural map of Istanbul after the declaration of the Republic and the historical period it witnessed; it is also a chronological record of a female Istanbulite studio photographer s professional career.
