Werner Bischof’la dünyanın gerçek yüzü

Sanatını 38 yıllık kısa ömrüne sığdıran Werner Bischof’un eserleri Fotografevi’nin katkılarıyla, İstanbul Leica Gallery’de sergileniyor.

Çektiği fotoğraflarla sesi işitilmeyen ülkeler ve insanların elçisi olmuş ünlü fotoğraf sanatçısı Werner Bischof‘un Türkiye’deki ilk sergisi İstanbul Leica Gallery‘de açıldı.

Leica Galeri, İkinci Dünya Savaşı’nın neden olduğu yıkım üzerine yayınladığı foto röportaj ile uluslararası itibar kazanmış İsviçreli fotoğrafçı Werner Bischof’un eserlerine ev sahipliği yapıyor. ‘Werner Bischof: 1936-1954′ başlıklı sergi, fotoğrafçılık serüvenini, “Dünyanın gerçek yüzünü keşfetmeye mecbur hissettim. Bolluk içinde tatmin edici bir yaşam sürmek birçoğumuzu kendi sınırlarımızın ötesindeki muazzam zorluklara karşı körleştirmişti” sözleriyle özetleyen Werner Bischof’un Türkiye’deki ilk kişisel sergisi.

16 Mayıs 1954 günü daha 38 yaşındayken And Dağları’nda (Peru) geçirdiği trafik kazasında yaşamını yitiren Bischof, bu kısa hayatına rağmen fotoğraf tarihinde büyük iz bırakan isimler arasında yer alıyor.

Bischof’un eserleri 4 Temmuz – 30 Ağustos tarihleri arasında bomontiada’daki Leica Galeri İstanbul’da görülebilir.
