Istanbul Photo Exhibition Displayed in Thessaloniki

    The Bosporus, the imposing bridges, the busy port, the impressive roads and Istanbul of the early 20th century, are presented in a photo exhibition titled: “Istanbul in 1900- T. Wild’s Photo Trek”. The English excursionist T. Wild, who visited Istanbul in the early 1920s, captured these original images.  He shot the photos when he was working in the spy service for the Queen of England. Christos Kalemkeris, the exhibition editor and collector, said that the exhibition presents panoramic photos of Istanbul while Hellenism was flourishing in the city. In the early 1920s, Greeks played a very important role in Istanbul’s social and economic life and this is visible in his photos. T. Wild donated his archive, which comprises thousands of photos, to the Museum. The exhibition is organized by the Photography Museum of Thessaloniki and will be on view from February 10th to March 13th at the National Bank of Greece Cultural Foundation.  The Bank is located at 108 V. Olgas Street in Thessaloniki.
