A bunch of photos


In the Ottoman period, used instead of a hat, turban. Cloth wrapped around the hat in fact, were used as cerement.


1935 belongs to the case of a bible. Remaining a Christian in prison inmates would use it Sinop in those years.

Afyonkarahisar images from an antique shop.



A ring that is used by people of Kazakh. Wedding ring. After the ceremony until the dying woman keeps the ring. This ring is considered sacred by Kazak.


"Keçecilik" the oldest profession Afyonkarahisar. Felt an image of the product.

Excellent series of photos, each so different, but in a way, sort of culturally connected. Thank you for your lovely images!
