TEHRAN – A selection of photos taken by legendary Turkish-Armenian photographer Ara Guler (1928-2018) are on view in an exhibition at Tehran’s Nabshi Center.

Patrice Vallette, founder and director of Vallette Gallery in Kuala Lumpur, is the curator of the exhibit named “Memoir of Lost History”.

The exhibition showcases over 160 photographs that Guler took in his career which spanned 60 years, the center announced in a press release published on Saturday.

“Life as It Is”, Turkish war correspondent and photojournalist Coskun Aral’s exclusive biopic about Guler, will also be screened at the center today.

Aral, Vallette and Iranian photographer and filmmaker Seifollah Samadian are scheduled to attend the screening program, which will be followed by a review session.

Known as “The Eye of Istanbul”, Guler had photographed famous figures, including Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso.

The exhibition has been organized in collaboration with Visioncy, a Malaysia-based cultural agency.
