Photo Archive Project to Preserve Kadıköy

The Kadıköy Photograph Center and the Fotoamele photography group have announced plans to create a street-by-street, photographic archive of Kadıköy, one of Istanbul’s most important Anatolian-side districts.

The project will show every street and corner of Kadıköy.

The archive will contain the district’s streets, mosques, houses of worship, schools and ancient buildings, said project coordinator Ayşe Küçükkurt.

Organizers said they planned to open an exhibition of all the photographs once the project is completed in the next year. “We will also publish a book with the photographs,” said Küçükkurt.

After completing the Kadıköy archive, Küçükkurt said they would continue by archiving other districts of Istanbul.
