Most of these photographs were not intended as ‘artistic’ images as such, although many have strong aesthetic aspects. Rather, as so often with photographs, it is through accidental serendipity, that each highlights different layers of landscape in an effort to document the speed of change on the peninsula. The aim is to encourage visitors and inhabitants to look again, protect and cherish their shared heritage, monuments and environment.
Note: As well as being exhibited at the Museum of Classical Archaeology in Cambridge, the photographs are also due be shown at the Archaeological Museum at Balat, Turkey, at the site of ancient Miletos itself.
This exhibition was curated by Anja Slawisch and Toby C. Wilkinson, as part of a project that has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement no. 700769. The organizers gratefully acknowledge the help, advice and assistance of: Renate Schiele, Ayşe Seeher, Banu Dogan, Yannis Galanakis, Ulrich Mania, Berna Polat, Cemre Üstünkaya, staff at the Milet Archaeological Museum in Balat and the Museum of Classical Archaeology in Cambridge.
