CI Photo Focus is the new platform that aims to promote and celebrate photography as a medium of art, and to bring together galleries and artists working with photography from the region and worldwide.

New to Contemporary Istanbul this year is CI Photo Focus, a platform dedicated to contemporary photography that brings together artists, galleries, and publications to explore the growing interest in photography. Overseen by Simone Klein, previously the Head of the European Photography Department at Sotheby’s London and Paris, and a former advisor at Photo London, CI Photo Focus showcases works from 8 different countries, 22 international artists, and 44 photography works will be shown at the fair. It will stage an exhibition presenting works from the Borusan Contemporary’s private photography collection. This year’s CI Photo Focus selection committee includes Coşar Kulaksız (photographer and curator), Kumru Eren (Managing Director, Borusan Contemporary), Leyla Ünsal (Co-Founder of Versus Art Projects), Sarp Kerem Yavuz (artist) and Tony Ventura (collector)
