There are few places in the world which offer classical history, city life and natural beauty in equal measure. Istanbul is one such place. Istanbul is a city drowning in urban sprawl, but it is also a place where magic holds sways, where people continue to scribble three wishes on to scraps of paper and burry them under a flowering bush or throw them into the sea. This fabled city is where the West ends and begins, the East begins and ends.Galata is a neighborhood in the Beyoglu district on the European side of Istanbul. Galata was first settled during the Byzantine period, and, in the 13th century, the Genoese established a colony that was called Galata. At one time, this mini port city had one of the busiest harbors in all of Europe, and was a center for banking and commerce. Over the years, the area became home to a large non-Muslim population, with many Italians, Greeks, and Jews living here. During the 19th century, the area was also known as ‘Pera’, named after the main street, which was then called the ‘Grand Rue du Pera’. Beyoğlu was the city’s most refined district at this time, with many Europeans residing here, giving it a very cosmopolitan air. In fact, the name Beyoğlu comes from ‘Bey Yolu’, which means ‘Gentlemen’s Street’.Galata Tower remains the district’s most iconic structure. Built by the Genoese in 1348, this structure has served many purposes, including a fire tower and prison. Demolished on several occasions due to fires and earthquakes, the current top section was rebuilt in 1967 and the tower is now a major tourist attraction, displaying a panoramic view of the city.

They say the more you know the more you understand how little you know. The same seemingly paradoxical situation can be noticed in art as well. No matter how many portraits or landscapes have already been painted or photographed; every new one is always a new discovery and a new masterpiece, if it was created with talent and creativity. Every day Cruzine magazine publishes inspirational images with different landscapes or nature photographs included, and every next day when we return to the same theme, it still looks fresh and offers a lot unique works we have never seen before. Nature is so diverse that photographers like Suren Manvelyan and Jean Slavin will always have enough sources for inspiration and objects for their photography work. Another eternal theme is a portrait and again the interest of wide public and artists to this topic will never fade away. Just have a look at the shots made by Robert Jaso and Andrey Yakovlev and you will understand the secret, which makes portrait art eternal and always timely.
