PHOTOGRAPHER ORHAN DURGUT’S PANORAMIC STUDY GIVES US A WIDER ANGLE ON TURKEY.
The Panorama Turkey project is made up of panoramas of 81 provinces. During the one and a half years they spent shooting the photos, Orhan Durgut and his team covered 180,000 kilometers and clocked 70 hours of flight time. Following hundreds of exposures shot in each province, those that could stand as trademarks for the cities in question were selected and collected in the book, a valuable archive that brings together the historic, cultural and natural richness of all Turkey’s cities in high-quality, panoramic photographs.
