The NIT carries out a project for the digitization and publication of the photographic archive of Machiel Kiel. It represents an invaluable source for researchers of this heritage. The archive also contains visual documentation of many monuments that have not survived, or have been significantly altered in, the second half of the twentieth century.

Digital copies of photos made by Kiel from the 1960s onwards can be consulted through these webpages.

For further information, please contact the curators of the archive, Dr. Grigor Boykov (griboykov@yahoo.com) and Dr. Maximilian Hartmuth (kielarchive@nit-istanbul.org).
