Yıldız Moran

Timeless Photographs

November 27, 2013 – January 19, 2014

The Pera Museum, Meşrutiyet Cad 65, Tepebaşı, Beyoğlu, Istanbul

It was an absurdly fleeting career. Yıldız Moran (1932–95), Turkey’s first woman photographer to train abroad (under the London photographer John Vickers), had a passion for photography, but quite simply gave up her dazzling career for love. Many of the images in this groundbreaking show at the Pera Museum are shown for the first time. The story is as bizarre as the images themselves are beautiful. Simply unmissable.
