Vafeiadis, Theodoros

Theodoros Vafeiadis established his photographic studio in 1896 next to the Sirceci train station. He was a very active photographer and the first to ask the Lumiere brothers to send him a movie camera as early as 1896, but they refused. The fact that Vafeiadis printed at least one set of cards with optical illusions shows both his love for innovation and the interest that people of that era shared for scientific issues.
