The first female photographer of Turkey to have received an academic training, Yıldız Moran’s photo-graphs (1932-1995) was presented in a comprehensive exhibition for the first time at Pera Museum.

Yıldız Moran began her career in photography with great passion, only to give it up after marrying Özdemir Asaf, another great passion in her life; nevertheless, during her brief career, Moran was able to produce significant and variegated work after studying with the famous photographer John Vickers in Britain. Her first solo exhibition in Cambridge was followed by ones in Istanbul, Ankara, London, and Edinburgh. In addition to her technical prowess and her masterful use of light, Yıldız Moran was a photographer who put her soul, intellect, and heart - in other words her whole self - into her work, thereby lending depth to her images. This comprehensive exhibition catalogue aims to present Moran’s inner voice through a new reading that focuses on the traces of her visibility within the history of Turkish and international photography.
