From the Editor

After a long brake, here we are again with the expected 6th issue of "FOTOGRAFYA".

"FOTOGRAFYA", Turkey's first virtual photography magazine, carries on with the efforts of Mr. Ugur Okçu and a group of new volunteer editors who are eager to contribute photography without any commercial expectations.

Like everything else does nowadays, there has been some changes in "FOTOGRAFYA" too. These changes started with the publishing committee and continued with new additions to magazine's contents. From now it will remain to change to be more good, beautiful and international. We believe that your magazine "FOTOGRAFYA" will improve with your critics and contributions. As the new publishing committee we started with a basic principle: "Persons in an institution can be altered, what important is the continuity of the institution". And thus we would like to thank to the old publishing committee for their efforts and contributions up until today for publishing the first five issue.
