Eye Of The Artist
Something about İstanbul has enchanted and inspired artists for centuries. How would you like to see some of their favorite haunts through the eye of an artist?
Who could resist? It’s an offer you can’t refuse… And Artistanbul, put together by photographer Christa Frieda Vogel with a preface by art historian Johannes Odenthal, is a good way to start rediscovering this magnificent city of ours. Some 34 artists are featured in the book, from experienced hands like Mehmet Güleryüz and Neş’e Erdok to the younger generation of artists like Hande Varsat and Sevin Özcan.
