Marmara Sea

Photographs of MMU Marmara Sea Symposium The Marmara Sea Photography Exhibition

Marmara, the only inland sea in Turkey, and the seven cities surrounding it cover about 20 percent of Turkey's population. Bosphorus and Marmara, home to tuna, flounder, urbot and so on back in the days when each season came up with its own fish, today carries the burden of pollution imposed by urban, agricultural, commercial and industrial activities on its shoulders.

The Marmara Sea Photography Exhibition aims to document the sea with photographs within the scope of such themes as water and life, environment, ecosystem, sustainability, protection of flora and fauna.
