Text engl. - Other ed.: Turkish ed. Osmanlı İmparatorluğu'nda Fotoğrafçılık 1839-1923. Istanbul 2013. First edition Haşet Kitabevi 1987 (231 p.). - This book provides an account of the history of photography in the Ottoman Empire, an important though neglected field in the history of an early photography. The sultans of the Ottoman Empire traditionally shaped the arts of their day, and their enthusiastic reaction to the discovery of photography was to be crucial in the development of photography in the Empire. This third edition of the book has been updated and enlarged to incorporate new information gathered over the years. Many nation states were created in the former Ottoman territories in Europe, Asia and Africa. The book endeavoured to focus primarily on photography within the present boundaries of the Republic of Turkey. A list of photographers who worked in in Turkey and the Middle East has been provided. The names of photographers that the author came across in documents written in Ottoman Turkish script have been given as spelt. The first two editions treated the story of photography in the Ottoman Empire from the announcement of its discovery in 1839 up to 1919, but this new edition has been extended up to the year 1923 when the Turkish Republic was founded. Researching the history of photography is an unending task requiring a lifetime's dedication. (Tanıtım Bülteninden).
