Ahmet İzzet Bengüboz was a Mudurnu countryman who learned the art and technique of photograpy in British a British camp, where he was held prisoner during the First World War. He applied his newfound art upon returning home, producing a valuable record of the town’s social life in that era. In particular, his ‘film director’ approach noticeable most of all in his portrait photographs, his competent compositions for large groups of people and the architectural photographs tirelessly documenting those times of Mudurnu, are more than enough to place Bengüboz among the most brilliant photographers of his time.
About 100 years later, this collection of high historic and artistic merit is being presented in an exhibition catalogue.
