Press Photographers -1- (1908 - 2013)

(Past Exhibition)

Popular publications such as Malumat and Servet-i Fünun began widely using photographs since the 1890s. Due to the media censorship enforced by Abdul Hamid II, newspapers and magazines accompanied news and articles with unrelated photographs of cityscapes, shots and portraits of daily life used to satisfy the public's curiosity. The freedom of press brought on by the Second Constitutional Period caused a boom in press publication. The use of a photograph as a supporting tool for political and social news was first used in this era.

Ferit İbrahim, who photographed for Resimli Kitap and Şehbal magazines, became Turkey's first press photographer by receiving a permit and a press photographer identification card in 1910. This selection of photographs starting with Foto Apollon's 1908 dated photograph and ending with Erhan Sevenler's photographs from Syria taken in March of 2013 comes together as a total of 120 photographs belonging to 61 photographers. The photographs, taken by newspaper and magazine press photographers, are exhibited in a chronological order with the aim of introducing our young fresh talent whilst commemorating the masters of this profession whether they're still among us or not.
