The book is a reprint in three languages of photojournalist Ara Guler's newspaper serial entitled "Armenian Fishermen at Kumkapi". The series appeared from May 21 to 26, 1952, in Armenian Jamanak newspaper. Twelve photos were used in this newspaper serial over six days. Here in this book, in addition to those twelve pictures, 56 photos provided from Guler's archives were also included for the purpose of reflecting the testament in its entirety. The visual materials reveal the lifestyle that has so recently desappeared dur to the huge and rapid changes to the features of Istanbul and Kumkapi, and transport these traces of the past fifty years to the present time.
