The Best of Turkey - A Photographic and Cultural Exploration
with John Weiss
October 4 - October 15, 2012

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

If you have never been to Turkey, the warmth of the Turkish people will amaze you. The architecture in the cities is truly awe-inspiring, and in the countryside you are welcomed into Turkish homes, served tea or baklava at any moment.

We photograph in some of Turkey’s most visually exciting places. In the alluring city of Istanbul, we discover where the treasures of the Silk and Spice routes met their markets. Istanbul is also the site of Hagia Sophia (Temple of Wisdom), the Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Palace of famous harems, and the fabulous Spice and Grand Bazaars.

Ephesus, the best-preserved classical city in the eastern Mediterranean, is the place to get a feel for what life was like in Roman times. The iconic ruins, photographed in soft light at dawn and dusk, are stunning. We also visit artisan villages in the surrounding countryside, photographing workers and their families. Then there are the less traveled valleys of Cappadocia, full of weird, lunar-like landscapes. Here we have time in small villages, visiting craftsmen, their friends, and neighbors. Our Turkey tour promises to be a highlight for photography of both landscape and people.

Includes tuition and land cost only. For complete information, please contact Strabo International Tour Company at (607) 756-8676, or call John Weiss at (410) 392-2929. Please mention that you learned about this opportunity through the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops.
