The Ara Güler Museum, one of Doğuş Group’s most essential social investments in the culture and arts field, was established in cooperation with Güler before his death.

The photographs capture different moments from everyday life, taking inspiration from the Bosporus and its shores, which are synonymous with Istanbul. The visitors embark on a journey accompanied by views of Istanbul’s coastline, stretching from the first light of the morning to sunset.
