A series of photo exhibitions: village life in Eastern Anatolia (1957–1979)

12 September 2022 | Author: Martin Greve

Nobody looked at their photos for decades: Kurt and Ursula Reinhard (1914–1979; 1915–2006) and Dieter Christensen (1932–2017) were known as musicologists and dealt with the audible world. During numerous research trips, they traveled to villages in different regions of Eastern Anatolia and beyond: The Reinhards traveled, for example, to Kars, Antakya, Malatya, Sivas, Gaziantep and the Black Sea coast; Christensen to Siirt and Hakkari.

7 January 2022 | Author: Paulina D. Dominik
