- What’s On
Curated by Bahattin Öztuncay, this exhibition commemorates the 200th anniversary of the birth of James Robertson, a leading figure of photography in the mid-19th century. Honoured by the Ottomans for his 40-year career minting coins and medals, he is best remembered as a pioneer photographer, the first to have taken 360° panoramic photographs of Istanbul from Beyazıt Tower.
The exhibition features original Robertson photographs and watercolour works from the Ömer M. Koç Collection. It is accompanied by a catalogue written by Öztuncay (available through the Cornucopia store), the review of which can be read in upcoming Cornucopia 50.
