The World of My Father

Nuri Bilge Ceylan

February 1, 2017 – March 5, 2017

Dirimart Nişantaşı, Abdi İpekçi Caddesi No. 7/4, Nişantaşı


Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s photographs of his father Mehmet Emin Ceylan get better with age. Almost a decade old, these portraits are on display at Dirimart Nişantaşı to the delight of Ceylan’s fans in Istanbul.

In his films and his photography, Ceylan confronts the complexity of Turkish identity with his intimate psychological portraits. Identical to film frames, the photographs in this exhibition capture the elderly man’s emotions and the subtle richness of Istanbul and its environs in stunning detail.

As Maureen Freely wrote in Issue 43, ‘[Ceylan] has a particular genius for finding the painterly in the real, and whatever he finds he enhances’.
