Foam presents Foto Galatasaray - Maryam Şahinyan's Photo Studio,  a selection from  the complete professional archive of Maryam Şahinyan (Sivas, 1911 - Istanbul, 1996).

The archive is a unique inventory of the demographic transformations occurring on the socio-cultural map of Istanbul after the declaration of the Republic. It is also a chronological record of a female Istanbulite studio photographer's professional career.
