Celebrating the Republic’s 99th birthday

By Cornucopia | November 3, 2022


On Saturday evening, people gathered to mark the Republic's 99th birthday in Şairler Sofası Park for the traditional 'Fener Alayı', a candle-lit procession down to the Beşiktaş Meydanı. These photographs were taken in Akaretler, Beşiktaş, by the Swedish-German photographer and filmmaker Annette Louise Solakoğlu, whose exhibition Ode to Istanbul is at the Şule Gazioğlu Art and Design Gallery, Boyacıköy – Emirgan, until November 20. The exhibition, very different in mood, features prominently in the forthcoming Cornucopia.
