News – Adnan Sezer Gallery
Adnan Sezer and Bruno Tartarin have the pleasure to present their new catalog “Portrait Photography” dedicated to the theme of portraiture in the history of photography.
This practice, which offers remarkable examples from its beginnings with the invention of the daguerreotype, experienced immense popularity with the emergence of the carte de visite. Whether it is social, documentary, ethnographic, or sets the image of protagonists in history, portrait photography has occupied a privileged place in the photographic experience since its invention.
