About the Exhibit

In 2011, Harvard professor Helmut Koester led an archaeological tour of eastern Turkey. Doug Finkbeiner and Chris Pollari brought their cameras and returned with way too many photos. This exhibit is an attempt to give a small taste of the wonders of Turkey.

About the Photographers

This is the second exhibit for Chris Pollari in the Gallery at University Lutheran, following Images of India in 2010. He has shown photos with Arlington Open Studios and had a photo spread in the Arlington Advocate. Travel photography is one of his specialties; he also likes to shoot stage productions. Some of his photos can be found at

Doug Finkbeiner learned the basics of film photography from his grandfather, Orman Haas, and developed and printed countless rolls of 120 film in the pre-digital era. Now as an astronomy and physics professor at Harvard University, he has more experience photographing the heavens than the Earth, most recently with the 1,400 Megapixel Pan-STARRs camera in Hawaii. When away from work, Finkbeiner is an enthusiastic travel photographer, and has visited 5 continents looking for the "perfect shot."
