Twentieth Century Photographic Visions of Rural Anatolia
The exhibition catalogue from the Research Centre for Anatolian Civilisations’ display of photographs taken by celebrated collector, photographer and champion of nomadic rights, Josephine Powell.
Josephine Powell wasn’t like other people. She did things most of us wouldn’t do, went to places most of us will never visit, and saw things most of us would overlook.
These attributes, along with a profound respect for nomadic peoples acquired during her work with the UN’s International Refugee organisation after the war, influenced her to become one of the great ethnographic photographers of Anatolia and the Near East.
