Photographer's Note

He is Ara Güler ! Absolutely "the" photographer of Turkey.
Born 1928 in İstanbul; most probably born with a camera in his hands.
He never calls himself a "photographer". He prefers the title "photojournalist" . I am proud to have him as my friend.
This capture was been made in his office, smoking his most beloved stuff !
Long live dear Ara !

Portreler galeri’min onunca karesi büyük usta Ara Güler.
1928 de İstanbulda dünyaya gelmiş Ara. Büyük bir ihtimalle, elinde bir fotoğraf makinesi ile !
Kendini hiçbir zaman “fotoğrafçı” diye nitelendirmedi. Onun tercihi “foto muhabirliği” !
Onunla dost olmaktan mutluluk duyuyorum.
Bu kareyi 2007 de Galatasaraydaki ofisinde çektim; en yakın dostu, sigarası ile elinde !
Çok yaşa Ara !
Bu kareyi de siyah&beyaz bir baskıdan taradım.
