Presentation by André Frère Editions:
" The intimate portrait of a city on the brink of a change. Istanbul, as you never seen it before.
With the book Güle Güle (« goodbye » in Turkish) we’ll take you on a surprising journey through the immense city of Istanbul, rapidly changing, bursting of energy and contrasts.
Photographs are the result of our multiple relations with people and places, a fascinating humanity and visually striking and unexpected situations and scenarios.
Gentrification, the marginalization of the poorer classes, the increasing discrimination of homosexuality, the massive migratory influx of Syrian refugees and the Kurdish community issue are just some of the realities behind the subjects portrayed.
The project is mainly organized in diptychs, with a constant dialogue between the images. Reality is deconstructed and reconstructed, favouring a free interpretation. Photographs have never been altered or retouched to enhance what we believe being immediacy and straightforwardness, coherent with the approach we had while doing this work.
The project Güle Güle was presented in 2019 as a dummy-book and received multiple awards and accolades, among them: Special mention Kassel dummy-book award, Shortlisted at Luma Rencontres Dummy Book Award, Arles, France, Winner at Sony World Photography Award in the discovery category. The project is featured at the Mannheim Biennale « für aktuelle Fotografie » - until September 13th, 2020 - with the exhibition of a selection of diptychs printed in large format. The exhibition curated by David Campany is titled When images Collide and is held at the Wilhelm-Hack Museum. "
This project is a collaboration between Valentina Piccinni and Jean-Marc Caimi. We are offering copies signed by both photographers.
