An exhibition from the archives of the late founding President of the TRNC Rauf R. Denktaş, has opened at the Muratpaşa Municipality Exhibition Hall in Antalya.

The event, prepared by Mine Çeliker and Cem Kar, consists of photographs selected from the private archive of thousands of photographs of the late President Rauf Denktaş and his own words about these photographs.

Rauf Denktaş was a keen amateur photographer and his photographs display childhood, family, years of struggle and promises that shed light on the history of Cyprus.
