The first basic training was held in 2015 by BOSİAD and he took a photo course program that Osman ÖNDER was an instructor. At the end of this course, he participated in the first group exhibition with his 3 photos. Then, he attended BUFSAD's 98th term basic training course, long exposure workshop and development workshop.

Most of the typographer masters in Istanbul after the republic were Armenians and Greeks. Our grandfather Cemal Büyükhakan also worked with Greeks at that time and became a very good typographer. They come to Bursa from Istanbul in 1965 and start working in Özkardeşler Printing House in Bursa. Our grandfather is such a good master that he could dismantle and rebuild huge machines as they were. He was nicknamed ‘MASTER ANDON’ in Bursa because of both these skills and occasionally speaking with a Greek accent.

We remember with love and respect ...

I would like to thank my dear wife Banu Doğu Keçe, grandson of Master Andon for the story.
