PHOTOJOURNALIST: The Life Story of Ara Guler -- 4


MUST-HAVE BOOK CHRONICLING COLORFUL LIFE OF THE
WORLD’S GREATEST LIVING STREET PHOTOGRAPHER


Photojournalist is about heart...the heart of one of the greatest street photographers to every walk the backstreets of Istanbul and far beyond. It is about the heart of Nezih Tavlas, who painstakingly coaxed and cajoled amazing stories that would otherwise likely go to the grave with Guler, because no one else had the passion and determination to unearth these layered, colorful gems from the humble master.

For anyone who has picked up a camera to document more than family birthdays. For anyone who has traveled to Istanbul. For anyone who has sought to reconcile Turkey's odd 20th century of being torn between east and west -- this book is a must-have.

It's not so much as it is an in print distillation of the better part of a century of a passionate, keen-eyed photojournalists heart, soul, drive, determination, sense of humor, sense of empathy and strong bond with humanity.

And that is very high praise coming from this journalist and author who is himself hard to please when it comes to biographies that are up to the challenge of capturing the essence of their subject.
