from U.S.A.K. Blog

Prof. Dr. Sedat LAÇİNER


Mr. Egoyan was born in 1960 in Cairo (Egypt) as the first child of Joseph and Shushan Yeghoyan. Then the family was in the furniture business. However, his parents were interested in arts.

Taken 2 (2012): Orientalising Istanbul…

In Uncategorized on October 21, 2012 at 00:24
