Jan. 30 in Glendale: "IMAGES OF ARMENIANS IN TURKEY 100 YEARS AGO" Ararat-Eskijian Museum and NAASR
An Illustrated Talk by Osman Köker
"Images of Armenians in Turkey 100 Years Ago"

Sponsored by the Glendale Public Library With the generous support of the Hampartzoum Chitjian Foundation and the Organization of Istanbul Armenians

In 2005, Osman Köker first came to international attention when he organized the unprecedented
exhibition "Sireli Yeghpayrs (My Dear Brother)" in Istanbul. Eventually seen by thousands of people, it presented photographs of Armenian life in pre-genocide Ottoman Turkey, drawn from a large collection of postcards owned by the collector Orlando Calumeno. In the five years since then, the exhibition has also been mounted in Paris, Munich, Koln, Frankfurt, Yerevan, and London.

Köker originally intended to write a book about Armenian life in the Ottoman Empire, but with the
discovery of the postcard collection the scope of the project changed. Following the exhibition he published the massive and beautifully-produced volume 100 Y?l Önce Türkiye'de Ermeniler, subsequently published in English as Armenians in Turkey 100 Years Ago, featuring hundreds of images showing where and how Armenians in the Ottoman Empire lived.

Osman Köker was also involved in the creation in 1996 of the Istanbul Turkish-Armenian daily Agos and Aras Publishing House, the only publishing house which publishes books in Armenian and books translated into Turkish from the Armenian.
