Friends, colleagues, representatives of Tourism authorities and Embassies were given the opportunity to enjoy a different journey to Turkey by attending the opening of Alp Alper’s aero-photography exhibition “Turkey from high above” in the Ianos Art Chamber.
The exhibition is organized by the Office of Culture and Tourism of the Turkish Embassy in Athens and will be operational until the 16th of May, 2015.
Alp Alper’s flame of longing for the art of photography has always been burning inside him since his early childhood and it was not earlier than 1992 when this love came to the surface again, when he started working as a flight dispatcher for the Turkish Airlines. After the disastrous earthquake that shook Turkey in 1999, Alper introduced himself with his work titled “Turkey from 1000 feet”. Alper’s exhibitions have been hosted in many cities such as Athens, Warsaw, Cape Town, London, Sao Paulo, Beijing, Duisburg, Toulouse, Aussillon and Paris.
He has also worked with many magazines including Gezi-Traveller, Gourmet and Ulusoy Travelers. Since 1999, he has worked with Greek magazines such as Cosmos Travel and National Geographic. He also began displaying his works in Turkish and Polish National Geographic magazines. He has published three books “Turkey from 1000 feet”, “Dreamscape Turkey” and “4 Seasons Istanbul”.
