Children’s foundation opens first exhibition
ISTANBULShowing off Istanbul through the eyes of children, a new exhibition is featuring the works of young photographers from the Koruncuk/Turkish Foundation for Children in Need of Protection as part of a social responsibility project.
Daily Hürriyet’s “Hür Gönüllüler” (Free Volunteers) group has helped make the project possible, under the guidance of Hürriyet Photo Editor Sebati Karakurt and his colleagues.
The theme of the exhibition is “Generation Difference.”
Koruncuk’s photographers, who are at the age of between 10 and 16, received eight months of instructions from Karakurt and his team, after which they took photos of Istanbul from their perspective in neighborhoods such as Balat, Üsküdar, Bakırköy, Ortaköy and Topkapı, as well as places further afield like Çanakkale and Edirne.
The photos, which went on display at Trump Towers in Mecidiyeköy on May 5, are all on sale for the benefit of the foundation.
The Koruncuk/Turkish Foundation for Children in Need of Protection believes that all children are entitled to the right to receive compassion, love and understanding, as well as sufficient nutrition, to live in a healthy environment, to benefit from the possibilities of play and fun, to receive modern education and to improve their skills.
