I saw his self portrait with his Leica, and I knew that the report on him was meant for RFF.

I didn't know that Güler was Armenian. Two famous Armenians died this month: Charles Aznavour and Ara Güler. May their light shine on this world.


Erik.

Yes, he is a Turkish photographer with Armenian parents. This was noted in the BBC report.

I’m so sorry to hear this. He is one of my photographer heros. His book on Istanbul is wonderful. Thanks for letting us know, Raid.

Guys, he is Turkish I confirm. I am from Turkey. We have many ethnicities and no matter what the origin is we call everyone "Turkish".
