TÜRKİYE - TURKEY

This photo collection is a product of several years of fieldwork in Turkey, especially in the small village of Çatalçam (1985, 1987, 1990 and 1996)
in the Taurus Mountains 150 kilometers north of Adana in the municipality of Tufanbeyli, and in the city of Diyabarkır in southeast Turkey
(1987, 1990 and 1991). During all the years I have had the privilege to benefit from the Turkish hospitality. Special thanks to Halil, Ayşe, Mahmut
and Sebahat Demirer, Çatalçam Köy. They have taught me more about human society than several years of academic studies at the university
(Onlar bana insanlar hakkında, yıllarca süren akademik çalışmalarımdan fazlasını öğretti).

Some of the photographs from 1985 were taken by Jens Bech (1943-2006), Strynø, Denmark (photo collection).
