The Historic Guild Town of Mudurnu’, one of the sites on Turkey’s UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List, was an important Early Ottoman centre of trade and the Akhi Order (Anatolian guilds), strategically located on the Silk Road, and a patriotic town of the new Turkish Republic. Ahmet İzzet Bengüboz was a Mudurnu countryman who learned the art and technique of photography in a British camp, where he was held prisoner during the First World War. He applied his newfound art upon returning home, producing a valuable record of the town’s social life in that era.
