Ahtamar Holy Cross Church Photo Exhibit Opens To The Delight Of Art Lovers

As part of Turkey’s attempt to promote its unique Anatolian heritage to the world, Ahtamar Holy Cross Church has been photographed by famous artist Izzet Keribar and is also just a click away for viewing by art lovers.

Under the Turkish Presidency Directorate of Communications, a photography exhibition entitled “Ahtamar,” was unveiled at the Hagia Irene Church in the Topkapi Palace Museum on Tuesday.

Turkish photography artist Izzet Keribar captured the unique nature of Ahtamar; his exhibit will be on display for visitors to see through the lens of the famous artist.

The 1,100-year-old Athamar Church, a medieval Armenian church in Turkey’s eastern Van province, was built between 915 and 921 by architect Bishop Manuel, under the direction of King Gagik I Artsruni.

Turkey’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism has carried out extensive renovation and restoration work to bring the medieval church back to its former glory.

Speaking to Anadolu Agency, veteran photographer Keribar said that he had been taking photos for 65 years and that the exhibition was one of the milestones of his professional life.

“I have been taking photos for 65 years. It is a precious moment for me as I am standing here with my photos of Akdamar, commissioned by the Presidency’s Directorate of Communications. This is one of the crowning works of my life,” Keribar said.

Designed as the first step in the project initiated by Turkish Presidency Directorate of Communications to promote Turkey’s rich historical heritage to the world, Athamar Holy Cross Church photo exhibition will be open to visitors for the next 20 days.
