Vakıf koleksiyonuna yeni katılan ve Sadrazam Kıbrıslı Kâmil Paşa’ya ait olan fotoğraf albümünden kurgulanan sergi, en uzun süreli barışı Osmanlı İmparatorluğu yönetiminde yaşayan Kutsal Topraklar’daki inanç çeşitliliğini ve bu çeşitliliğin mimariye nasıl yansıdığını anlatırken, mimarlık ve fotoğraf tarihçilerine, geçmişimizi farklı bir pencereden okuma ve yorumlama olanağı da veriyor.
Since 2006, Istanbul Research Institute has endeavoured to introduce the Photography Collection of Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation through a series of exhibitions. Centered on the photograph album that once belonged to Grand Vizier Kıbrıslı Kâmil Pasha and added to the Foundation's collection, the exhibition portrayed the diversity of faiths in the Holy Land - which enjoyed the longest period of peace under Ottoman rule - and how this diversity is manifested in the architecture of the region. Furthermore, the exhibition also provided a unique opportunity for historians of architecture and photography to read and interpret the past though a different perspective. Uzun Öyküler - Long Stories
Long Stories: İstanbul in the Panoramas of Melling and Dunn, opened a visual window to the city of emperors and sultans, a micro-level study of history that focused on the historical topography of the city. The exhibition was curated by Ekrem Işın with M. Baha Tanman acting as project consultant. Panoramas constitute the visual narratives of a city. Emperors and sultans cast their shadows in the images stretching before our eyes; the symbols of power piercing the sky are surrounded by the cultural texture of daily life, as well as the city's architectural composition and nature. The raison detre of a panorama is to bear witness to the urban image that appears as a protagonist on the stage of history, set against the civilizational decor that the eye perceives at first sight. Long Stories: İstanbul in the Panoramas of Melling and Dunn was not only a visual feast, but also a historical survey, which compelled viewers to reconsider the identity of a city that left its mark on the art of panoramic engraving.
