proud to co-present
The World of My Father
the first U.S. photography exhibition
Nuri Bilge Ceylan
the acclaimed film director.
The American Turkish Society, Tina Kim Gallery, and Dirimart have partnered to present the first exhibition of Nuri Bilge Ceylan's photography in the United States. Ceylan was the winner of the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Festival for Winter Sleep. The exhibition will explore how photography remains a foundational aspect of Ceylan's cinematic work. In The World of My Father, Ceylan turns his formidable gaze to Mehmet Emin Ceylan, a charismatic figure who played prominent roles in Ceylan's first three films, Clouds of May (1999), The Small Town (1997), Cocoon(1995). Viewers familiar with Ceylan's films will be delighted to see Ceylan's same commitment to subtle imagery in his photographs.

The American Turkish Society is pleased to announce an open call for short film submissions for its 14th New York Turkish Film Festival. In building bridges between cultures, cinema is a particularly powerful tool that transports audiences to distant places, while reflecting universality of various human experiences and emotions. For the past fourteen years, The New York Turkish Film Festival has screened over 300 Turkish films to a steadily increasing audience. Nonetheless, this accomplishment can only be maintained by your valuable support and film submissions.
Selected submissions will be screened at the 14th NYTFF, and considered for our audience-choice award, which was implemented for the first time in 2014.

September 19 - November 2
The Built Environment, Lower East Side is an exhibition featuring nine international artists, none of whom have previously shown in Istanbul. These artists are grounded in the urban spaces they inhabit and in which they work. The Lower East Side in Manhattan, New York City is a seminal zone of activity for these artists and The Built Environment, Lower East Side in Istanbul transports some of the energy and attitude that exists within the creative communities of the LES and exposes that dynamism and spirit to Tophane, Istanbul.
These artists work in photo-based practices, painting, collage, printed matter, sculpture, video, and some are producing site-specific works, directly engaging with the built environment of Istanbul. The artworks combine references to constructed space with a focus on urban topography, specifically a sense of how the order and structure of our environment can produce a sense of disorientation, confrontation, or sometimes anxiety.
The artists whose works are included in The Built Environment, Lower East Side in Istanbul are Anna K.E., Carol Szymanski, Eli Ping, Erica Baum, Frank Heath, Jill Magid, Josh Tonsfeldt, Joshua Abelow, Robin Cameron. The project is curated by Kathleen Madden, art historian and lecturer at Sotheby’s Institute of Art and Barnard College, Columbia University.
For more information about the exhibition, please see here.
The online application for the 2014 Young Photographers Award is available at the official website and the deadline has been extended to June 1, 11:59 PM, Istanbul time. One winner will receive a $5,000 award, and two honorable mentions will each receive a $2,500 reward. The awards are used to cover the recipients’ tuition and/or photography equipment. For more information about the selection process, please visit the official Young Photographers Award website.
Given by Haluk Soykan and administered by The Moon and Stars Project of The American Turkish Society, the Young Photographers Award seeks to encourage and support undergraduate students of photography in Turkey. It is made possible by a grant from the Young Photographers Award Fund established by Haluk Soykan at Turkish Philanthropy Funds.
