“The People Who Made OMM”
A photo book from OMM Books
Consisting of short interviews and 18 monochrome portraits, some of the construction workers who made and transformed the museum building talk about their stories, craft, and the relationship they formed with the museum in "The People Who Made OMM," a new release from OMM Books.
Highlighting the proximity of labor and artistic production, "The People Who Made OMM" celebrates the transcendent nature of works of architecture and art while immortalizing the construction team as part of OMM’s collective memory.
Inspiration for the project came in February 2019 when a staff member overheard OMM's construction manager, Mehmet Akif Güler, giving a detailed and impassioned description of the building and future plans for it. The monochrome portraits were taken by Emilio Hope, renowned art and fashion photographer.
Printed as a limited edition book (500 copies), the English copies of the book can be purchased from the OMM Shop via e-mail or at Minoa Akaretler in Istanbul.
