One of the most prominent contemporary photographers, Ahmet Ertuğ, came to Dubrovnik because of the invitation of Museum of Modern Art Dubrovnik. During this week he will take photos that will be part of the exhibition that the MOMA Dubrovnik prepares in December. Locations of the photo shooting are still a secret.
The Turkish photographer will present photographs of the interior design cycle of the most famous buildings such as Aja Sofia in Istanbul, Milan Scale, the famous Teatro Olimpico Theater in Vicenza, the Sammezzano Castle in Tuscany, the University Library in Turin and many others. For the upcoming exhibition in Dubrovnik, Ertuğ will provide a new perspective of the Old City, interior and exterior of the famous Dubrovnik buildings as well as the hidden corners.
The photo collection of the exhibition entitled "The Vanishing Point" will be presented in Dubrovnik in mid-December this year, and the same exhibition will be presented in 2018 and 2019 in France under the auspices of the "National Center for Monuments of the Republic of France" (Center des monuments nationaux ").
Ahmet Ertuğ was born in 1949. After studying architecture in London, he trained in England, Iran and Turkey. Ertuğ discovered his photography love during his studies, by recording the street life of West and East London. His devotion to photography started after receiving the prestigious scholarship of the Japanese Foundation for Photography of Traditional Japanese Architecture.
Ertuğ’s photography projects of architectural heritage have been published in more than 30 of the most important art books and he had the most important solo exhibitions in Paris, London, New York, Vienna and Istanbul. He has photographed some of the most important opera houses, libraries and theatres.
