    Ok, I’m not always impressed by the images posted here. Not that they are bad, but quite often they lack that something that make them really stand out. Of course this is only my opinion, based on my own tastes.
    But looking at your pictures, I just couldn’t resist the urge to leave this comment – something I don’t do that often – to tell you how great I find them. In my opinion – again! – you are a very good photographer, capable of catching a honest glimpse of your country and its inhabitants.
    I really like your work. Well Done.

    What a beautiful selection of photographs. I enjoyed seeing the people of rural Turkey through your keen eye. Excellent work!

    And now you’ve added somewhere new I have to explore once the borders reopen. What beautiful countryside and people. Thanks for sharing them with us!

    These photographs truly move me. They are wonderful. In one sense they are old and with an editorial feel of the thirties, and with another view a purity of light similar to an Ansel Adams. I find them deeply enthralling and love to study them over and over. I find myself studying not only the people but their surroundings…even the rocks of their homes. Fine job.

    These are beautiful photos of the people and your country. Your sense of framing and the skillful use of tones in b&w make these photos special. Thank you for sharing these images!

    There’s nothing much to say about that. A wonderful photo report.

    Dear Hasan, the second photo with the person riding in front of those sheep (?) is one marvel of a picture. Tessekür ederim.

    Your first three images are reminiscent of the style of Salgado, your photography is to be congratulated.
    I noticed that Ted Vieria has posted a positive comment, that in its self speaks volumes.
