Istanbul Photography Walks
Exploring Galata, Religion and Art:
A photo walk through new and old places of the spirit.
(open to everyone, photographers and not)
Starting with a visit to a beginning of the cent. **synagogue, and the Anglican church with unusual icon art by a contemporary Scottish artist depicting expats living here since the early 90's. Down the hill we will have a look at Mimar Sinan's last mosque and lunch in a local restaurant of Karakoy, (the old port now trendy and quaint). We will end up in an ancient caravansaray once stables and boarding travelers on the silk road, now a unique oasis of artists and metal workers working side by side.
**On Sunday's, instead of the synagogue we can visit a Russian Orthodox church in an apartment building.
