HISTORY OF ART / ART & DESIGN STYLES. More than twenty mosques and tombs were built from the fifteenth to the early seventeenth centuries in Istanbul, Bursa, Edirne and Uskudar. They are the products of a bold, daring and refined civilisation at the height of its power. The photographs in Sacred Spaces are a testament to the exquisite taste and sophistication of Ottoman architecture. All these buildings and complexes reflect the spirit and social values of an entire society, as well as their taste and artistic ideals. The photographs pay tribute not only to a splendid array of mosques from different times and places but to the men and women who built them and to the faithful who still gather in their midst.
