The first female photographer of Turkey to have received an academic training, Yıldız Moran (1932-1995) was presented to audiences through a comprehensive exhibition for the first time at Pera Museum.
Moran began her career in photography with great passion, only to give it up after marrying Özdemir Asaf, another great passion in her life. Nevertheless, during her brief career, Moran was able to produce significant and variegated work after studying with the famous photographer John Vickers in Britain. Her first solo exhibition in Cambridge was followed by those in Istanbul, Ankara, London, and Edinburgh.
Besides her technical prowess and her masterful use of light, Yıldız Moran was a photographer who put her soul, intellect, and heart - in other words her whole self - into her work, thereby lending depth to her images. This comprehensive exhibition, a “retrospective” in a sense, aims to present Moran’s inner voice through a new reading that focuses on the traces of her visibility within the history of Turkish and international photography.
With many photographs to be seen for the first time (along with a limited number of others Moran has become famous for), the exhibition offered an opportunity to meet a figure that had until now remained in the dark - the first “schooled” female photographer of Turkey.

Pera Museum presented a talk on Nicola Lorini’s video installation For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones, bringing together the artists Nicola Lorini, Gülşah Mursaloğlu and Ambiguous Standards Institute to focus on concepts like measuring, calculation, standardisation, time and change.
1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
