On Turkish Republic Day, 29th October, the Turkish Embassy had a reception at the embassy to commemorate 91 years of Turkey being a republic. As part of the celebrations, Tracey Benson and Martin Drury were very privileged to have an exhibition of their photographs at the embassy.

Here is some images of installing the show with Garry Benson and Mr Ramazan.

Here are some images of the reception.

You can buy a copy of the book through Tracey’s Etsy shop for $120 plus postage. The photographs are also for sale and will be exhibited publicly in 2015 (TBC).

We would like to thank the Turkish Ambassador, His Excellency Reha Keskintepe and all the staff from the embassy for supporting this project and for presenting our work as part of the Republic Day celebrations.
