NarPhotos – Million Dollar View
12/07/2013 @ 11:00 - 30/07/2013 @ 17:00
12 – 30 July 2013
How does urban renewal transform the city, what does it transform? What view is revealed by urban renewal? What view is this in the figurative sense: What kind of scenery, spatial order, social network, social class pattern? And what view is it in the literal sense of the word: What kind of landscape, geography, picture of the city?” Million Dollar View – Pictures of Urban Renewal – İletişim Publishing
The exhibition Million Dollar View consisting of photographs by NarPhotos Collective will be opened on Friday, 12 July 2013 at 20:00 at DEPO Istanbul.
In the years of 2012 and 2013, Serra Akcan, Eren Aytuğ, Mehmet Kaçmaz, Tolga Sezgin, Saner Şen and Kerem Uzel from NarPhotos Collective have photographed the socio-urban view that is being generated by urban renewal on the periphery of Istanbul.
In May 2013, the photographs were simultaneously published by İletişim Publishing in the book Million Dollar View – Pictures of Urban Renewal, together with a collection of essays by Semih Akşeker, Cihan Aktaş, Hakan Bıçakçı, İhsan Bilgin, Tanıl Bora, Gaye Boralıoğlu, Funda Şenol Cantek, Haydar Ergülen, Alev Erkilet, Özgür Sevgi Göral, Pınar Öğünç, Mine Söğüt, Jean-François Pérouse, Özcan Yurdalan and Turgut Yüksel.
Ezgi Bakçay (İMECE Urban Social Movement, Mimar Sinan University Sociology Department) will be giving a talk together with the NarPhotos photographers, on Friday 12 July 2013, at 19:00.
