the Atatürk Cultural Centre May 06-10, 2014
of Nicosia came to the exhibition on Tuesday evening, the event being opened by
HE Dr. Dervis Eroglu and together with Dr. Sibel Siber and Mehmet Gökyigit, the
president of FODER, he extended his congratulations to the winning participants
in the competition project with the theme COFFEE.
the whole house was smelling of coffee brewed in one corner of the exhibition
hall. An atmosphere of coffee house was created by groups of men sitting at
tables and playing cards or …and women sitting together knitting, making
embroidery and reading the coffee cups while drinking it. It was a surprise and
really charming life installation, sort
terrific idea to restrict a photographic project to one and only theme and through
the more than one hundred of photos I could follow the wonderful culture of
coffee drinking in Cyprus, in coffee houses, in private homes, with old and
young people sharing the same passion, reading the cups, but also the
manufacture of it. Why not create a coffee museum with all these beautiful
photos around. You can see that the photographers had much fun doing them,
among them famous photographers. I also saw their yearly exhibition in 2012 and
wrote about it on my website under No. 347. They also do photographic courses
which I have already in mind to visit.
