Photographer's Note

History
Ottoman period

Murad II took Thessaloniki with a brutal massacre and enslaved roughly one-fifth of the city's native population. Upon the capture and plunder of Thessaloniki, many of its inhabitants escaped, including intellectuals such as Theodorus Gaza “Thessalonicensis” and Andronicus Callistus. However, the change of sovereignty from the Byzantine Empire to the Ottoman one did not affect the city's prestige as a major imperial city and trading hub. Thessaloniki and Smyrna, although smaller in size than Constantinople, were the Ottoman Empire's most important trading hubs. Thessaloniki's importance was mostly in the field of shipping,but also in manufacturing,while most of the city's trade was controlled by ethnic Greeks.
