    PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

    PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

    One thing that Istanbulites know and first-time visitors learn quickly is that in Istanbul the only guarantee is the unexpected which lies around every corner. Anyone navigating Istanbul on foot - whether they have lived here for decades or have only recently stepped off a plane - is sure to encounter chaotic life and happy coincidences along the way.

    Documenting the experience of encountering Istanbul for the first time is the exhibition ISTANBUL / ENCOUNTERS, a collaboration between up-and-coming Finnish photographer Tuukka Ervasti and the Asmalımescit atelier PÜR ISTANBUL.

    Tuukka Ervasti captures in his signature monochrome prints the experience of witnessing Istanbul for the first time. His photography is a fresh look at the iconography of Istanbul and a playful marriage between Istanbul's epic vistas and its many moments of surprising intimacy.

    PÜR ISTANBUL has supported the artist on every step of his journey via the PÜR - ART - STAY scheme which hosts visiting artists in one of PÜR's Galata residences. PÜR ISTANBUL is now proud to host the scheme's inaugural exhibition at the Asmalımescit atelier, opening Friday, May 13th.

    Please join PÜR ISTANBUL and Tuukka Ervasti for further Istanbul encounters!
