Through Ottoman Eyes is a visual documentation of one of the most controversial Ottoman sultans, Abdulhamid II - and how he stayed in power for 33 years, governing an empire through photographs. It is the visual story of the magnificent Yildiz Palace photography collection that was created as a result. Through Ottoman Eyes takes viewers on a journey back in time to the 19th century, and introduces them to never-shown-before photographs.
