Last week we returned from Sagalassos, where we have been photographing for a week. Apart from our work on the site itself, we also photographed 3 sites on the territory of the ancient city of Sagalassos: Kapikaya, Tekke Saray and Kale Kökez.
Kapikaya is a beautifully located archaeological site high up in the Taurus mountain range on the road between Isparta and Antalya. Once you cross the mountain pass the ruins of the ancient settlement spread out in front of you. The well preserverd walls and structures are set within a rough landscape with panoramas down into the valley.
Tekke Saray is a plateau from which you can see the Burdur Lake from afar. You have splendid views to all sides. On the plateau you can find traces of ancient settlements.
The Kale of Kökez is a spectacular canyon with rock cut houses. Small but very worthwile.
On these 3 sites we concentrated mostly on the interaction between the landscape and the site. Image galleries will follow soon as everything is being processed now.
In Sagalassos we concentrated on the Freeze Frames (see for example Odeion), experimented with stereography and made some night shots of the Antonine Nymphaeum. Apart from that we also made our first test in color photography.
The results will be uploaded by the end of september when we have finished our first selection.
