The photographer and author Lynn Gilbert has been sharing her exquisite and captivating images of Turkish homes on the Cornucopia blog over the course of the past year. Each post feels like an insider’s peek into her travels across Turkey and presents vivid, unstaged photographs of traditional Turkish interiors and exteriors. Whether in the remote village of Camili or the bustling port of Bodrum, Lynn captures the beauty of the domestic realm, which is often overlooked in favour of more monumental architecture and design.
We are delighted to announce that Lynn’s photographs of Turkish homes are currently on display at the Godwin-Ternbach Museum in Flushing, NY, in an exhibition titled ‘Along the Silk Roads’. In celebration of this exhibition, which runs until December 15, Lynn has created a video documenting her inspiration as an artist and how her work evolved to focus on Turkey. It also features many of her photographs of Turkish interiors, a real treat for those of us who have been following her work on the blog.
