Works by Ara Guler to go on display in the heart of Wall Street

A selection of photos taken by legendary Turkish-Armenian photographer Ara Guler, who passed away last October, will be on display in New York in September, Anadolu Agency reports.

Following successful runs in London, Paris, and Kyoto, works by the late Guler will be exhibited at the Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House, in the heart of Wall Street, from Sept. 23 to Oct. 4.

The exhibit will draw in visitors from around the world, as the UN General Assembly will take place in the city this month.

The exhibit includes Guler’s iconic photos of international luminaries such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Indira Gandhi, Mother Teresa, Brigitte Bardot, and Sophia Loren.

Ara Guler was born in Istanbul in 1928. He worked as a Near East photojournalist for Time Life magazine in 1956, for Paris Match in 1958, and also for German magazine Stern.

His images on art and art history were published by Time Life, Horizon, Newsweek, and Skira Publishing.

In 2002, he was awarded the Legion of Honor Order of Arts and Letters by the French government, and in 2009 he received La Médaille de la Ville de Paris from the Paris Municipality.

Guler passed away on Oct. 17, 2018, at age 90.
