Ara Güler describes himself as a “visual historian”, and his work reflects the importance he places on the human element in a picture. In this collection of portraits, he presents a classic assemblage of famous personalities from the worlds of literature, photography, art, politics and film. The images are accompanied by detailed captions that provide compelling insights into the significance and story behind the photographs.

About Ara Güler

Born in Istanbul in 1928, Ara Güler is not only one of the masters f photography in Turkey, but holds a prominent place in the pantheon of the world’s great photographers. A stint at a Turkish newspaper during his university years soon led to photojournalist assignments for Time-Life, Paris Match and Der Stern. Meeting Henri Cartier-Bresson in 1961 prompted him to join the Magnum agency in Paris, and his career progressed to greater heights. That same year, he was named one of the seven best photographers in the world by Photography Annual, and was also conferred the prestigious title of Master of Leica.

About Alberto Manguel

A resident of France since the turn of the 21st century, Manguel was made Officier des Arts et des Lettres in 2004 by the French government, in recognition of his significant contribution to the literary world.
