This sequence of Dervishers was taken on the 19th January 2014.
I had been given an Honorary Degree, in Photography from Izmir in October last year and saw a sample of Dervishers. In December I returned to Konya , the spiritual Home of the Culture. I made pictures. I visited the site of Rumi and felt the tender spirit here .I also gave a lecture @ The Esparta university at this time.
Returning to Istanbul, in January was a joy and met up with friends.
So on a Sunday afternoon I made some photographs.
This sequence echoes that experience. The images can be made as single images 20x16 inches.
Here is the rotation of the Dancers as they pass me by.
Photography for me is a vehicle to be allowed access to other worlds.
