Abstract: Koç University, Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations is hosting: ‘(In)Site Sagalassos: The Archeology of Excavation Photography’ between March 9th and June 10th. Striking excavation photography for art and archeology enthusiasts will be on display from the site that is 7km south of Burdur’s A─člasun district. Dating back to 4200 BC, the ‘─░mparatorlar Kenti’ (City of Emperors) was awakened from its slumber through the work of Belgian photographers Bruno Vandermeulen and Danny Veys.
Inspired by the deeply rooted relationship between photography and archaeology, and their common history, the exhibition “(In) Site Sagalassos” includes images of the spectacular structures. As well as the exceptional findings, the photos reflect the excavation process, the landscape, structures, and the relationships among people. Translating the archaeological vision into a more contemporary language, Vandermeulen and Veys explore the link between the surrounding area and the site in photography.
