Istanbul by Benjamin Ochse
Friends and admirers of his photography called him "The Eye of Istanbul", but he preferred to see himself as a citizen of the world and a photographer of the world.
On 17 October 2018, the renowned photographer Ara Güler died in his hometown Istanbul, which he portrayed like no other since the 1950s. But he also worked internationally and became a member of the Magnum agency in 1956.

As a tribute to Ara Güler, we show photographs by Benjamin Ochse that were taken on a trip to Istanbul in spring 2015.

Benjamin Ochse has been working internationally as a designer, photographer and lecturer since 1986 and now runs his own studio pixeltransfer design studio in Berlin.
