Alaminüt Fotoğraf reveals the history of photographers working on the  streets of Turkey with a simple wooden box, serving as camera and dark-room in one. The camera was used from the 1910s onwards and has been an integral part of the history of photography in Turkey as well as the documentation of Turkish citizens in the new republic. The book explores the work of these photographers throughout the country, focusing on both leisure and administrative photographs.
