- What’s On
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.
