Turkey’s most well-known photographer, has taken more than 800,000 photographs documenting Turkish culture and important historical sites. Featured are photographs of medieval Seljuk and Armenian buildings that Güler, who is now eighty-five years old, took in the early 1960s and printed in 1965.
Just a small sample of the breathtaking images by Alejandro that you will find in his tumblr. I have previously complained about the lack of representation of Latin American architecture here on tumblr, but his photographs make up for some of it, capturing in his images the beauty and sophistication of our architectural legacy. For that you get a heartfelt hug from me, thanks.
