“Study, Rock church and light” Soğanlı, Turkey 2014.

        This church can be found a little after the village of Soğanlı, on the road that leads to the main Soğanlı complex. İt is on the right, easy to miss save for the carved out steps that snake up the steep rocky escarpment. İf i remember correctly, the entrance is adorned with some frescoes and is littered with graves of all sizes. Once inside, an other worldly silence envelopes the interior architecture of columns and niches. İt was at that moment i saw and made the photograph above.

        38.340178, 34.979944 are the co ordinates you can paste into Google maps to see the exact location. This is a hand printed silver gelatin photograph that can be found here.
